Published on May 14, 2020 by

The World Health Organisation has warned COVID-19 could remain indefinitely saying countries may need to live with the endemic much in the same way people live with HIV.

During their daily briefing, officials warned against any attempt to predict how long the pandemic may last.

WHO Executive Director Dr Michael Ryan said countries may have to learn how to live with the virus even if a vaccine is developed.

“This virus may become just another endemic virus in our communities and this virus may never go away. HIV has not gone away but we have come to terms with it,” Dr Ryan said.
