The world is fighting a battle against the global pandemic Coronavirus disease and hoping the corona to finally go from our lives. The top Chinese scientists’ have said that the Sars-Cov-2 virus causing Covid-19 will not go easily from this world and likely to return like the flu every year. The director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Anthony Fauci has warned of a second wave of infections in the coming winter.
The director of the Institute of Pathogen Biology at China’s top medical research institute, the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences said that “This is very likely to be an epidemic that coexists with humans for a long time, becomes seasonal and is sustained within human bodies.”
Scientist Wang Guiqiang quoted this statement “The virus is heat-sensitive, but that’s when it’s exposed to 56 degrees Celsius for 30 minutes and the weather is never going to get that hot”.
Chinese and other scientist members reported that this Sar-cov-2 Coronavirus would not disappear from the world, unlike its close cousin virus did 17 years ago. This deadly contagious virus has spread so far across the globe, and more than 3 million people got infected by this.
JVR Prasada Rao, former health secretary, Union ministry of health and director-general, NACO told reporters that “A second wave is likely in November but by then countries would have gone through the first wave and health systems would have time to recover. In the post-Covid-19 world, social distancing, face masks, and hand washing will also become a social reality until we get a vaccine”.
