Giving a kind of a shock to the world World Health Organization (WHO) said that the deadly virus may never go. The global health body dismissed all the attempts to predict how long the coronavirus would keep circulating with its statement.
“It is important to put this on the table: this virus may become just another endemic virus in our communities, and this virus may never go away “, said Mike Ryan WHO’s emergency expert. WHO also called for a “massive effort” to counter it.
“I think it is important we are realistic and I don’t think anyone can predict when this disease will disappear. I think there are no promises in this and there are no dates. This disease may settle into a long problem, or it may not be‘, added Ryan. The WHO says that it could become an endemic like HIV Virus that causes AIDS. However, unlike HIV it’s spreading rate is fast.
So, far are around 100 potential vaccines are being developed, including several in clinical trials. However, experts have highlighted the difficulties of finding vaccines that are effective against coronaviruses. Clubbing WHO’s statement with the world epidemiologists one can say that the world has to learn to live with ‘coronavirus’.
