The World Health Organization warns that the coronavirus is not going to be eradicated and the world must learn to live with the epidemic.
The corona virus has killed more than 300,000 people worldwide, and many countries are moving toward easing lock downs and other restrictions to control the epidemic. However, experts are constantly warning that doing so could increase the severity of the epidemic.
The World Health Organization has also described the spread of the corona virus as serious.
The agency’s director of emergency, Michael Ryan, told a virtual press conference in Geneva on Wednesday that the coronavirus had spread to humanity and that it was impossible to predict how long it would last.
He said that HIV has not been eradicated from the world so far and now it is facing the challenge of an epidemic in the form of Corona virus which is not going to be eradicated any time soon.
Ryan added that it is a good opportunity for the international community to look for opportunities to develop a vaccine for the corona virus and to make it accessible once it is ready.
The head of the World Health Organization, Tedros Gabrias, also says that most countries in the world are taking various steps to control the corona virus. However, the agency’s recommendations remain that steps be taken to prevent its spread as much as possible.
The coronavirus, which originated in the Chinese city of Wuhan at the end of last year, has so far infected the entire world and the most affected country is the United States, where more than 80,000 people have died.
Vaccines are being developed in other countries, including the United States and the United Kingdom, to treat the epidemic. There are lock downs to prevent the spread of the epidemic and citizens are being instructed to stay indoors.
Routines have been restored in some European countries, including China, but citizens are being instructed to take precautions.
Voices against the lock down are being raised in various states of the United States and the demand for allowing citizens to move freely is constantly increasing.
President Donald Trump has on several occasions called for the resumption of business. However, Dr. Anthony Fauchi, an American epidemiologist, has repeatedly warned that the epidemic could escalate if the lock down is eased.
