Learn to live with COVID 19: WHO

The coronavirus that causes Covid-19 could become endemic like HIV, said WHO recently, warning against any attempt to predict how long it would keep circulating and calling for a ''massive effort" to counter it.

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, "Who emergencies expert Mike Ryan told an online briefing. I think there are no promises in this and there are no dates.

This disease may settle in to a long problem, or it may not be". However, he said the world has some control over how it coped with the disease, although this would take a "massive effort" even if a vaccine was found — a prospect he described as a "massive moon shot".

More than 100 potential vaccines are being developed, including several in clinical trials, but experts have understood the difficulties of finding vaccines that are effective against coronaviruses. Ryan noted that vaccines exist for other illnesses, such as measles, that have not been eliminated.

WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said" The trajectory is in our hands, and it's everybody's business, and we should all contribute to stop this pandemic.But public health experts say extreme caution is needed to avoid new outbreaks. US President Donald Trump has pushed for reopening schools, against the advice of his chief epidemiologist.
