‘Covid-19 here to stay, won’t vanish completely’

The way the novel coronavirus pandemic is developing shows that the virus will never be completely gone, Melita Vujnovic, the WHO’s representative in Russia, said on Sunday. The virus will be transmitted as an endemic disease, TASS news agency quoted Vujnovic as saying on the Soloviev Live YouTube channel.

“Coronavirus is on its way to become an endemic disease. That means it won’t go away. But we have to learn how to treat it and protect ourselves from it. The most important thing is that we have to stop the outbreak of infection now and reduce the number of people falling prey to it. Otherwise, new forms will emerge unexpectedly,” she said.

In addition, Vujnovic said the evidence indicates the Omicron variant is less severe than other strains. However, its dangers should not be underestimated, and it is too early for humanity to rest, she said. “There is now evidence that Omicron appears to be less severe than (previous forms), but that does not mean that it should not be taken seriously. Coronavirus infection can have very serious consequences,” she said.
