So where do we stand now? I saw a comment from March 2020 stating: 'definitely i see high chance of demand going way DOWN, not up,  with people stuck at home, fired from work...' 
So assuming the idea of Covid was to curb demand, will we see exponential rise in inflation with reopening of borders, travelling, buying new cars, clothes etc. etc. ? I believe if central banks do not stop QE and increase the interest rates they are screwing 99% of the people.

Hyperinflation even inside NATO

Analysts warn of increased dollarisation, hyperinflation and the rising cost of debt.

And even expectation of hyper inflation can accelerate inflation also other places...wait and see!!

But the maximum velocity of money is still c, so do not fear hyperinflation coming to u faster than the speed of light, it is impossible. Relax!

electricity price up like a few hundred percent in Norway (from normal winter Peak price). One kr per KwH was considered very high before, now we had 6kr per KwH), students shower in the gym (to save 25 to 50 kr that it cost to take a quick shower at home), I just wanted a coffee, but cafe was over filled with students as one of few place they can stay warm without paying their shirt to stay warm...(excellent Omicron strategy by the way, packed cafes, but boosters they will for sure be offered, as most students are above 6 months old.)

old ladies (and bitter-sweet men) hides at home from Omicron with nisselua langt nedover ørene to stay warm... old wood stoves not allowed to use in many towns as not burning clean enough...heating with oil is outlawed long term ago in the oil nation, and hardly any have gass stoves (exported)

Norway one of the countries with most energy per capita are freezing to save world from global warming, the clean energy (and the dirty) has been exported to the brits and others, and many are not even allowed to heat with wood in old charismatic wood stoves, this is how we will save the world....med nisselua langt nedover ørene!

Oslo student dormitory today :

Why would they sell naked call options on showering? don't they understand climate risk? 

and some one stole fire-wood from my barn this week  :o not kidding...from now all will be behind locks and doors..

almost all fossil fule is exported, oil gass not allowed to use to heat the shower or the water. Norway will reach zero emission in time I think according to the Paris agreement, if not (golden) shower revolution starts before that...

Modern economies and wealth fare (such as access to showering) are built around access to energy, I have for long time talked about we need much more resources to fundamental physics to solve energy challenges of the future, but I have been ridiculed for such suggestions by "Green" Party. To forbid students to shower I do not think is the very best solution to save the world! Well Oslo has recommended people to pie in the shower before, so not exactly shocking.
