15 Mai, 2020, 04:13 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

While speaking at a presser in Geneva, Dr. Mike Ryan explained why he thinks COVID-19 could become part of human life moving forward in the way HIV/AIDS and the influenza virus. "HIV hasn't gone away", said Ryan.

"I am not comparing the two diseases but I think it is important that we are realistic".

When it comes to a vaccine, "there are no promises in this and there are no dates", he declared, and even if one is created, that does not mean the coronavirus will instantly be eliminated. "This disease may settle into a long-term problem, it may not be".

Nearly 300,000 people worldwide are reported to have died with coronavirus, and more than 4.3m cases recorded.

Referring to the incidences of attacks on ethnic minorities in certain countries over COVID-19, Ryan said that coronavirus is bringing the "best in us and also some of the worst in us".

There are now more than 100 potential vaccines in development, but Dr Ryan noted there are other illnesses such as measles that still haven't been eliminated despite there being vaccines for them.

More than 100 potential vaccines are being developed, including several in clinical trials, but experts have underscored the difficulties of finding vaccines that are effective against coronaviruses. He said that if countries reopen without systems to detect transmission, it will accelerate, forcing governments to take more lockdown measures.

Ryan said there was still some time before normalcy returns, adding there was "some magical thinking" that lockdowns work perfectly and that "unlocking lockdowns will go great".

As the risks are high, World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus still wants countries to be on a high alert against the virus. "But our recommendation is still the alert at any country should be at the highest level possible". "Both are fraught with dangers".

"We have seen some countries bring the virus under control". "People feel empowered to take out their frustrations on individuals who are purely trying to help".
