The World Health Organization (WHO) warned this Wednesday that the new coronavirus “will never go away” and “could become another endemic virus like HIV”.
This was expressed by WHO Health Director Mike Ryan, who pointed out that in this situation it must be “realistic” because “nobody can predict whether this disease will go away or not”.
Ryan has illustrated the new coronavirus situation with that of HIV or measles that exists today and, in the case of HIV, thousands of people live around the world.
Although Ryan believes it is unwise to raise expectations about the end of the disease, he has found that a vaccine “offers a chance” but must be “highly effective and available to everyone”. .
