Coronavirus could become endemic like HIV and ‘may never go away’, warns WHO

The new coronavirus may never go away like HIV and the world will have to learn to live with it, Dr Michael Ryan, a top World Health Organization expert, warned.

Dr Michael Ryan warned that COVID-19 could become endemic and cautioned against hoping for a vaccination that would end the deadly pandemic.

It’s possible the new coronavirus may be here to stay, said Dr Ryan (left) in a press briefing on Wednesday May 13 adding that without a vaccine it could take years for the global population to build up sufficient levels of immunity.

This virus may become just another endemic virus in our communities, he said, noting that other previously novel diseases like HIV have never disappeared; however, effective treatments have been developed against them.
