The corona virus has been raging all over the world for months. When will mankind finally succeed in overcoming the insidious virus? Anyone hoping for an early end to the pandemic will have the experts’ prognosis despair. They believe that global vaccination protection will only be achieved in 10 years.
All over the world, the coronavirus strikes relentlessly in April 2023. Worldwide, more than 3.1 million people have been infected with the highly contagious virus. Hundreds of thousands have died as a result of the virus. But when will this pandemic finally be ended so that people can find their way back to a reasonably orderly everyday life? The experts’ forecasts are sometimes frightening, as can currently be seen in the issue of the British newspaper Mirror. Because experts believe that an end to the pandemic is far from in sight. At least that’s what David Miliband, former UK Secretary of State and currently President of the International Rescue Committee believes. According to Miliband, the end of the coronavirus risk could only be reached in “five or ten years”. Miliband made the corresponding statements in an interview with the BBC.
The former British Secretary of State points out that the poorest of the poor are at the height of coronavirus infection. The virus is only just beginning to spread in Africa. A total of 500 million to 1 billion infected people and around 3 million deaths worldwide are expected. Even though the researchers are working flat out on a vaccine, Miliband believes that it may take years before this vaccine can be made available to refugees, victims of war and marginalized groups from around the world.
Miliband is not alone in his opinion, because many experts believe that the coronavirus will keep humanity in suspense for years to come. According to some experts, the pathogen Sars-CoV-2 will never be completely eradicated, but will return in seasonal waves of infection similar to the flu. The main problem with the coronavirus is that the pathogen also spreads to people who do not show any typical symptoms of the disease.
