The coronavirus will not disappear from our lives during 2022, according to Danish researchers, who disagree with the WHO’s optimistic forecasts.
In his summary of 2021, WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said that if all goes well, 2022 could be the year when the pandemic ends.
However, he stressed out that for that to happen, most people in all countries would have to be vaccinated.
Danish researchers find that unlikely. Eskild Petersen, professor of infectious diseases at Aarhus University, says we will have to live with the pandemic for several years.
Chief physician and professor Lars Østergaard says the coronavirus will affect our everyday lives even when the pandemic is over.
“The pandemic may end. But that does not mean that corona will disappear from everyday life. I think we will never be able to wave goodbye to the coronavirus. What we want is to have such good immunity in the population that we can deal with it like the other diseases we know,” he said.
