I have been hearing that COVID-19 will have a radical change to livelihoods. Notably, the virus happened to remove Trump in the coming election, while there will be less polarization. Technology will change where everything is online while people will be eating at home more.

What will the new normal look like after COVID-19 is eradicated? 36.2 Brightness Hidden (Darkening of the Light) to 11 Flow (Peace).
Hex 36: Brightness hidden. Constancy in hardship bears fruit. (Oracle) Brightness enters the earth's centre: Brightness Hidden. A noble one, overseeing the crowds, uses darkness and light. (Image)
Line 2: Brightness hidden, wounded in the left thigh. For rescue, use the power of a horse. Good fortune.
Hex 11: Flow. Small goes, great comes. Good fortune, creating success. (Oracle) Heaven and Earth communicate: Flow. The prince enriches and completes the way of heaven and earth, Upholds and assists the order of heaven and earth, To support and protect the people. (Image)
11 context=There will be balance between mother nature and humankind.
36.2=People will be helping each other.

How long will people wait until the economy restarts? 25.1.2.6 Without Entanglement (Innocence, The Unexpected) to 47 Confined (Oppression, Exhaustion).
Hex 25: Without entanglement. Creating success from the source, constancy bears fruit. One who is not upright commits blunders, And it is fruitless to have a direction to go. (Oracle) Below heaven, thunder moves. All things interact Without Entanglement. The ancient kings, with abundant growth in accord with the seasons, nourished the ten thousand things. (Image)
Hex 1: Without entanglement, Going on, good fortune.
Hex 2: Not ploughing and reaping, not weeding cleared fields, And so then it is fruitful to have a direction to go.
Hex 6: Without entanglement, Acting brings blunders. No direction bears fruit.
Hex 47: Confined, creating success. Constancy of a great person, good fortune. Not a mistake. There are words, not trusted. (Oracle) Lake without water: Confined. A noble one carries out the mandate, fulfils her aspiration. (Image)
47 context=People will still have to socially distance.
25.1=Things will continue on.
25.2=There is nothing that needs to be done.
25.6=There will be mistakes along the way.

Will we see a second COVID-19 wave? 14.1.3.4 Great Possession to 4 Not Knowing (Youthful Folly).
Hex 14: Great Possession. From the source, creating success. (Oracle) Fire dwells above heaven: Great Possession. A noble one ends hatred and spreads the good, She yields to heaven and rests in her mandate. (Image)
Line 1: No interaction with what is harmful, In no way at fault, So that hardship is not a mistake.
Line 3: A prince makes a summer offering to the son of heaven. Small people are in no way capable of this.
Line 4: It is not for you to dominate, No mistake.
Hex 4: Not knowing, creating success. I do not seek the young ignoramus, the young ignoramus seeks me. The first consultation speaks clearly. The second and third pollute the waters, Polluted, and hence not speaking. Constancy bears fruit. (Oracle) Below the mountain, spring water comes forth: Not Knowing. A noble one nourishes character with the fruits of action. (Image)
4 context=People will be ignorant.
14.1=People will avoid others that are infected.
14.3=Our leaders will help us by making mandates.
14.4=It will happen.

What will be the new normal?
Hope springs eternal!
36.2 - 11: After this "darkening" the life force rises again.

How long will people wait?
Not long enough.
25.1.2.6 Oblivious to the problem, not paying attention when one should, just being totally thoughtless PLUS
47. Thinking you're smarter than everyone else so not trusting anyone else's words/advice.

Will we see a second CONVID-19 wave?
You can't fix stupid.
14.1.3.4 - 4. People could social distance and doctors can make recommendations but ultimately you can't force people even when it's in their best interest.

(Thanks for going to the trouble of posting the translations of the hexagrams, Fanofenka!)

Regarding the third question, is it referring to the ones who protested will get affected. Seeing that many places are declining in hospitalizations from the peak, people are more eager to leave home.

I don't see the response as picking out any particular group. You asked if there would be a second wave and I think the hexagrams are saying yes, if people don't follow the guidelines.

4.The Fool describes someone who asks a lot of questions but he still doesn't "get it", so he has to learn by actual experience.

36.2 >11
The problem with this question is the assumption it will be eradicated. When are we talking about here? In the fall if it proves seasonal as SARS did in 2004, or in 3 years after they develop a vaccine?

11 Peace time. So no wars over this maybe.
36.2 Wilhelm/Baynes: Darkening of the light injures him in the left thigh. He gives aid with the strength of a horse. Good fortune. [Here the Lord of Light is in a subordinate place and is wounded by the Lord of Darkness. But the injury is not fatal; it is only a hindrance. Rescue is still possible.]
Legge: Line two is magnetic, but in her proper and central place, giving us the idea of an officer, obedient to duty and the right. Her wound in the left thigh may impede her movements, but it does not disable her. She finds the means to save herself and maintain her good purpose.

> Well. 2020 is the Year Of The Horse. So this could be a hint the Yi is talking about now, and so by context of the question the virus may prove to be seasonal.
I would say this indicates the United States, although wounded will help a lot of other countries.
But then again - Fanofenka specifically framed these questions in the context of "Notably, the virus happened to remove Trump in the coming election, while there will be less polarization."
If this reading is taken as addressing that, it indicates that while wounded he will not be removed from office. "Lord Of Light." LOL. Good one. Could be the Yi knows you hate Trump, and is ribbing you.
Oh STOP. Metaphorically, the Yi could well refer to the President of the United States and the Leader of the Chinese Communist Government as "The Lord Of Light" and "The Lord Of Darkness."

How long will people wait until the economy restarts?
25.1.2.6>47
47 Context - talking about a time when people are shut in. The water has dried up.
25 Being Natural. Supreme Success, unless you have ulterior motives which make all movement unfortunate.
25.1 Confucius/Legge: When he who is free from insincerity makes any movement, he will get what he desires. Wilhelm/Baynes: Innocent behavior attains its will.
25.2 Legge: The second line, magnetic, shows one who reaps without having ploughed, and gathers the produce of her third year's fields without having cultivated them for that end. To such a one there will be advantage in whatever direction she may move.
Wing: Do not dream about the results of your work or the attainment of your goal. Instead, take action for its own sake and devote your full attention to what you are now doing. Only in this way can you achieve your aim.
25.6 Wilhelm compares the import of this line to line six of The Dynamic:"Arrogant dragon will have cause to repent.” Ritsema/Karcher’s “In order to take advantage of the situation, do not impose a direction on events” puts a slightly different spin on the meaning, suggesting that circumstances will improve if you can keep from meddling.

> I think this indicates people are not all in the same situation. In 25.1 people can trusted to make the right choices, "movement" could include protests to return to work, petitioning government for ending restrictions they think make no sense, or slow rolling the opening of their businesses and being careful. In 25.2 people are living off future earnings and feel they need to do something. You can only do that for so long, so you need to do something. In 25.6 you have people that simply refuse to work with society and chafe at all rules and restrictions, ignore advice, and when they act that always brings bad fortune.

Will we see a second COVID-19 wave?
14.1.3.4>4
4 Context - The Hexagram about Learning, Acquiring Experience.
14 is about Wealth, not neccessarily as money but as in having many Blessings.
> Perhaps the Yi is framing it's answer as "Health is the Greatest Wealth." <

14.1 - Wilhelm/Baynes: No relationship with what is harmful. There is no blame in this. If one remains conscious of difficulty, one remains without blame.
> Maybe means best practices will prevent a second wave.

14.3 - Legge: The third line, dynamic, shows us a feudal prince presenting his offerings to the Son of Heaven. An inferior man would be unequal to such a duty.
Wilhelm/Baynes: A prince offers it to the Son of Heaven. A petty man cannot do this.
> In context, this sounds to me anyway like medical therapies or even a vaccine (offerings.)

14.4 - > This is a complex line, please read a few versions. I take it to mean people that have differences also recognize the time requires they let others more qualified do their jobs. So people work together for the greater good rather than conflict over it.
As DeKorne says "...don't overstep your authority or aspire above your proper place. The line can also refer to co-dependence to other people's illusions. You have your own unique path to follow: you cannot acquiesce to the unenlightened expectations of others without doing damage to yourself, to them, and to the Work."

> So I think the answer to this question is because of the above reasons, while not totally eradicated there will not a significant "second wave" due to progress being made on several levels.

Brightness hidden, wounded in the left thigh. For rescue, use the power of a horse. Good fortune.

I got that line today myself for a question of my own, so lets give this a shot. It's a dark and difficult time. He's wounded, so he can't walk by himself, he can't get himself where he needs to go the way he usually would. He's obviously in a difficult situation, or he wouldn't need to be rescued. But he hasn't given up, he's putting everything into getting out of there. So he uses a horse. Riding a horse with a serious wound in the left thigh would be painful, not something you'd do if you had a choice. But he doesn't have a choice, so he summons his strength and does it. And there's some advantages to riding a horse over walking, you can go faster, they have more power and strength than a human.

I can see this suggesting that the new normal when (if) the pandemic comes under control will be a grim and difficult time where people have to do things differently, but at least some people will manage to struggle through, finding alternative ways to do things that they wouldn't have thought of without the pandemic. And those new ways may lead to some better ways of living. Who knows? Less use of petrochemicals, more decentralization away from the cities, greater flexibility in working arrangements?

Now I'm going to have a look at Bradford's commentary on the line. I love his commentaries at the moment, the way he plays with the image and expands upon it.

ADDED: Ah, yes, some of Bradford's ideas are the same, even if he expresses them much more nicely. Here's some snippets: "He can even use the event to help turn the thing around ... Suddenly he finds himself with twice the speed and five times the strength as before, and committed to a new Plan B with ten times the promise of A. This is a function of balance and using all the circumstance offers."

Well in defense of my earlier reading, a "second wave" might depend on how you define it. If you define it as deaths there hasn't been, mortality has significantly declined and continues to decline.
Although in the US confirmed cases are up recently due to reopening, in early March 25.6% of all hospitalized for Covid19 died. By mid-August this declined to 7.6% and the number continues to fall.
That is a decline in mortality of over 70%. Likely because of new therapies pushed through the FDA, improved treatment protocols, and possibly the virus is becomong less fatal - which is not uncommon in viruses.
