  • COVID-19 may become another endemic virus and may never go away' warns WHO

The online briefing was part of a warning issued by the World Health Organization on Wednesday (13th May 2020) against countries who were trying to make predictions as to when the pandemic would "end", while calling on for a "massive effort" to control its spread. "And we have found the therapies and we found the prevention methods, and people don't feel as scared as they did before", he added.

"This virus may become just another endemic virus in our communities and this virus may never go away", Michael Ryan, the WHO's emergencies director, told a virtual press conference in Geneva.

The tension in balancing people's safety against the severe economic fallout is playing out across the world.

"It is important to put this on the table: this virus may become just another endemic virus in our communities, and this virus may never go away", Ryan said. "HIV hasn't gone away", Ryan said on Wednesday.

He pointed out that the number of cases needs to be reduced to the "lowest possible level" in order to lift the lockdown restrictions, adding that reopening when the COVID1-19 cases are high will lead to accelerated transmission. "COVID-19 is bringing out the best in us, but it's also bringing out some of the worst".

He stressed the importance of worldwide cooperation to develop vaccines, pointing out that HIV has not gone away, but as therapies and prevention methods have been found, "people don't feel as scared as they did before". "Every one of those steps is fraught with challenges", Dr Ryan added.

Only about half (53%) of United States adults aged 35-44 said definitively that "Yes, I would get vaccinated" against COVID-19, if a vaccine were to become available, according to a Morning Consult poll taken earlier this month.

"Forgive me if I'm cynical, but we have some perfectly effective vaccines on this planet that we have not used effectively for diseases we could eliminate and eradicate, and we haven't done it", Ryan said.

Gerard Toplass, founder of the BusinessBounceBack campaign and executive chairman of two construction firms, said he expects there to be "one million people who are not necessarily going to go back to the job they had".
