Covid-19 May Not Go Away Just Like HIV – WHO

The deadly virus covid-19 may stay with us for years just like HIV, according to World Health Organization (WHO).

During a brief meeting on Wednesday, Dr Ryan Mike WHO emergencies director cautioned against unnecessary predictions regarding when the deadly virus will disappear, adding that people may have to learn to live with it.

Over 4.3 million people globally have so far been infected with Covdi-19 and almost 300,000 have died as a result. US and Europe are the most affected regions.

It’s very important to say this straightforward: This deadly virus will probably become one of the endemic diseases in our communities such as Malaria, Typhoid fever, Cholera etc, and it may remain in us for years,’ said Ryan Mike during a press conference in Geneva, Switzerland.

Even if the scientists discover the vaccine, it will be difficult to control the deadly virus as it will require a great effort,’he added.

‘Diseases like HIV and etc have not gone away, but we have tried to control’

Mr Ryan continued and said he can’t believe anybody can make predictions on when this virus will disappear.

United Nations Health Agency (UNHA) has released a structure of general rules as to how people should return to work as different countries around the world continue to ease pandemic lockdown measures.

A couple of days ago president Ramaphosa of SA urged people to get prepared to continue living with covid-19 for period of a year or even longer.

I therefore appeal to everybody that since we changed our behavior in fighting the spread of HIV/AIDS, we must in the same way change our behavior in fighting against the spread of covid-19,’he added.
