The coronavirus will change to the point of becoming like theinfluenza, so it is not destined to go away. This is the prediction ofWorld Health Organization (WHO), according to which the probabilities of eradicating Sars-CoV-2 decrease. In particular, Dr. Mike Ryan, executive director of the WHO Health Emergency Program in yesterday’s press conference. “I think this virus is here to stay with us and it will evolve like pandemic influenza viruses, it will evolve to become one of the other viruses that affect us“. Anyone who thinks that we will be able to make this virus disappear is very wrong. “No, we won’t, it’s very, very unlikely».
Mike Ryan he is not the only one to think so. Several scientists, including Anthony Fauci, as well as Stephane Bancel of Moderna, they had warned about the fact that we will have to live with Covid forever, as we do for the flu. However, this does not mean that it would not have been possible, especially if the right measures had been taken to stop the spread of the virus.
WHO “WE COULD STOP COVID, NOW …”
«We had a chance at the beginning of this pandemic, this pandemic was not supposed to be that serious», He declared in the same press conference Maria Van Kerkhove, WHO technical chief on Covid-19. A prediction, however, that shouldn’t surprise us, given that there has been the flu pandemic which is currently no longer a public health emergency. The evolution of the coronavirus with its variants. That Deltain fact, it is much more contagious than the Alfa, for example. This allows the coronavirus to continue spreading.
But this forces the various governments to reshape vaccination campaigns, arranging third doses, starting with the most fragile. Italy is also moving in this direction, which just today received the green light from AIFA. On the other hand, the WHO has a different opinion, according to which richer nations should postpone booster doses to allow poorer countries to accelerate the immunization of their populations.
