Amid the surging number of coronavirus cases across the world, the World Health Organisation has said that COVID-19 may become "another endemic virus and may never go away" just like HIV.

 

"We have a new virus entering the human population for the first time, and therefore it is very hard to predict when we will prevail over it. I think it's important to put this on the table: this virus may become just another endemic virus in our communities and this virus may never go away," said Michael Ryan, executive director of the WHO Health Emergencies Programme.
