Well, illness in general is sure to go down. Things like bacterial infections of all kinds, flu viruses too.
Will the memory of this change people's interactions for years to come?

They have not been able to make a vaccine for the coronavirus cold, they have tried and failed. They also have not been able to make a vaccine for SARS. I am sure that even if they can't make a vaccine, we will be injected with a fake one because by that time a lot of people in this country will already have partial immunity and they will take credit for the people who do not get sick, just like they do with the flu. A real lot of people have lifelong immunity to the flu viruses, but they talk them into taking the vaccine anyway because their success rate would be poor without those people who cannot get a bad case of the flu because they have immunity already.

Unless some advanced technology *cough* saves us, Herd Immunity was the only real solution on the table. Hiding in our homes and distancing is only dragging this thing out so those with authority and resources can get more authority and resources.
