Specialized experts expected from the University of Minnesota, the end of the new Corona virus “Covid 19” within two years, according to what was confirmed by the newspaper “CNN” American.
The experts pointed out that the coronavirus affects about 60 or 70% of the population, and they recommended that the United States of America should prepare for worse scenarios than there are now, expecting a second wave of coronavirus infections, which will come during the winter and autumn seasons.
Mike Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Diseases Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, said, “The epidemic will not stop until it affects between 60 and 70% of the world’s population, and that current assurances about the virus ending soon will challenge biology.”
The researchers stressed that no person is immune to the virus, and it is likely that it will remain for a period of between 18 and 24 months, which is the period when human immunity is expected to gradually develop.
The researchers explained that there are 3 possible scenarios for the emerging coronavirus,
It is the first wave of the Corona virus, Spring 2020, followed by a series of repeated smaller waves that occur during the summer, lasting between one to two years, and then gradually decreasing at some point in 2021.
A first wave of Covid-19 followed by a larger wave in autumn or winter and one or more smaller waves in 2021, which is similar to an outbreak of influenza in 1918.
It is a slow burn for transmission, and they are advised to take measures to control the infection.
The experts said, they are surprised by the decisions of some countries that seek to lift restrictions on controlling the emerging virus, without controls, confirming that Covid 19 will take more lives, and experts continued that the corona virus vaccine may not be available before 2021.
