Covid-19 might be staying here for a while longer than we first assumed.
According to The Guardian, Professor Mark Walfort, a member of the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage), equated the Covid-19 virus to influenza and stated that vaccinations should be recurring on a global state.
He further continued that Covid-19 is unlike smallpox in which that one vaccination would eliminate the entirety of the deadly virus.
“This is a virus that is going to be with us forever in some form or another and almost certainly will require repeated vaccinations. So, a bit like flu, people will need revaccination at regular intervals.”
He also commented on his concerns with the possibility of the virus to be out of control again by observing the number of rising cases in the UK. Walfort emphasised to the public on how there will be severe measures if the virus continues to spread rapidly.
He also reported that less than one in five people in the UK were infected with the virus and 80% of the people are still susceptible to Covid-19.
