In fact, the situation has become a global emergency. COVID-19 is indeed the most dreaded and scariest viruses that has gripped mankind in centuries. The world is awaiting and looking forward for a vaccine to treat the virus. But according to experts, the virus is less likely to go even with a vaccine. That means, Coronavirus is here to stay for decades.
NDTV reports that Sarah Cobey, epidemiologist and evolutionary biologist at the University of Chicago asked, “This virus is here to stay. The question is, how do we live with it safely?”
Meanwhile, many countries are working on creating vaccine to kill the virus. Indian government has stated that it will take at least a year to create a vaccine for Coronavirus.
