Corona Virus May Never ‘Go Away”, Just Like HIV

WHO Emergencies Chief Michael Ryan during the online press briefing on Wednesday

The World Health Organizations said on Wednesday that the world must learn to live with the Corona Virus as it may “never go away”.

Michael Ryan, the WHO’s emergency chief, said that the Coronavirus might become an endemic virus in society, just like HIV and Measles.

The emergency chief stated, “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.”

Michael Ryan said that people must accept the reality that the Corona Virus will remain in our communities and find therapies and preventions methods against the deadly virus like the world has done with HIV.

There are more than 100 likely vaccines against COVID-19 that are development. However, experts say that it is difficult to find one that is effective.

Who, however, cautions countries against easing restrictions to avoid a new wave of infection, despite the calls for learning to live the Corina virus.

“We need to get into the mindset that it is going to take some time to come out of this pandemic,” Maria van Kerkhove, a WHO epidemiologist, said during the briefing.
