Many countries are seeing a peak in Covid cases and some experts are predicting the end of pandemic. However, Gregory Poland is editor-in-chief of the scientific journal ‘Vaccine’ in the US says Covid virus could be affecting humans for the next century.
Transmission of COVID-19 has been so rampant among the vaccinated, unvaccinated and even among animals that Poland, and other experts, fear it will be impossible to control and circulate for dozens of years down the line.
According to Gregory Poland, “We are not yet at any stage where we could predict the end of pandemic. We`re not going to eradicate it,” Poland noted that the virus has shown the ability to infect animals, meaning it can potentially circulate indefinitely as it transmits across species and continues to mutate.
Gregory Poland is not the only expert who has made such forecasts for the future. Dr Anthony Fauci, US top infectious disease expert, warned last week that a new Covid strain could form that would dramatically alter the state of the pandemic like the Omicron variant did after Delta.
