Dr. Michael Ryan, a World Health Organization (WHO) official has said that the new coronavirus may never go away.
Dr. Michael Ryan said in a press briefing on May 13, 2020, that new coronavirus clusters have surfaced around the world as nations struggle to balance reopening economies, and preventing a second wave of infections. It's possible the new coronavirus may be here to stay, issuing a warning that it's impossible to predict when the pandemic might be controlled. Also, he added that this virus may become just another endemic virus in our communities, and it could take years for the global population to build up sufficient levels of immunity.
The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19 including symptoms, prevention and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organisation or your national healthcare authority.
