WHO: Corona Virus May Not Go Off


The head of the emergency of the World Health Organization(WHO) has expressed his fear that the deadly Covid19 may not go away but become another endemic in the world.
World Health Organization's executive director of emergency: Dr. Michael J. Ryan stated this on Wednesday while speaking at a videoconferencing from Geneva, Switzerland.
He was responding  to questions on the life span of the novel virus when he explained 

“I think it's 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,” Ryan said.

“HIV has not gone away, we've come to terms with the virus. And we have found the therapies and we found the prevention methods, and people don't feel as scared as they did before,” he added.

“I think it is important that we're realistic and I don't think anyone can predict when or if this disease will disappear,” the WHO official said.

He expressed hope that highly effective vaccine from scientists will eliminate the deadly virus

“But that vaccine will actually have to be available and to be highly effective, it will have to be made available to everyone,” Ryan said, noting that scientists can come up with a vaccine.

“Someone has got to make it and make enough of it so that everyone can get a dose of it.

“We've got to be able to deliver that. And people have got to want to take that vaccine. Every single one of those steps is fraught with challenges. It's a massive opportunity for the world, ” the Irish former trauma surgeon and epidemiologist explained
