A top official of the World Health Organization warned that it is possible that the corona virus remains with us. In a press briefing, Doctor Michael Ryan said, ‘May this virus never go away’. He said that without vaccine, it may take many years for people to increase immunity in sufficient quantity.

Doctor Ryan said, ‘I think it is important to bring this thing in front of people. It is possible that this virus will become another local virus among us, just like other diseases like HIV which can never be eradicated but effective treatments are available.
Doctor Ryan said, ‘We are living in a real world and I don’t think anyone can predict how long this disease will be over. I think that in this situation it would not be right to make any promise or to say that the virus is gone. This disease may or may not last long.
WHO warns – Corona virus will never end
However, he said that the world has tried to control this to a great extent but we have to increase our efforts further and we will have to continue these efforts even after the corona vaccine is introduced.
More than 100 vaccines are being made on Corona Wars so far, many have also undergone clinical trials but still experts have not been able to get some positive results which can eliminate the effect of Corona. Ryan said that even after the vaccine of measles-like disease has not been eradicated till now.
At the same time, the director of WHO said that ‘we all have the responsibility to end this virus and we should all contribute to stop this epidemic.
The whole world is thinking of opening a lockdown, but health experts say that we have to be very careful to prevent new cases of corona. Doctor Ryan said that there is not as much danger in opening borders as in starting air travel, which can be a different kind of challenge.
WHO epidemiologist Maria Van Kerkhov said in the briefing, “We should keep in our mind that it will take some more time to get out of this epidemic.
Rise in global poverty
Meanwhile, the United Nations has forecast that the corona virus epidemic could reduce the world economy by 3.2% this year, which would be the worst economic decline since the recession of the 1930s. The United Nations’ mid-year report was released on Wednesday, stating that COVID-19 is expected to reduce global economic output by about $ 8.5 trillion.
According to the United Nations, this decline is going to outweigh all the economic benefits of the last 2 years. The United Nations World Economic Situation and Prospects report states that this epidemic will also promote poverty and inequality. Apart from this, about 40 million people are expected to go below the poverty line in 2020. 56% of these people may be from Africa only.
According to the United Nations report, by 2030, some 130 million people can join the very poor category, which can prove to be a major setback for global efforts to eradicate poverty and hunger.
Earlier, many scientists have issued warnings that the corona virus is changing its form which may be more dangerous than before. Scientists claim that this new form of corona may be more contagious than its actual form. Scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory in the United States have mentioned this in a new study.
Researchers wrote that the new form of Corona first appeared in Europe in February, which soon spread to the US and then to the world by March. The report also warns that apart from the rapid spread, this virus can make people so weak that they may also have infections again.
According to the report, this change is occurring in the spike of the outer part of the corona virus, which has become the target of respiratory cells. The authors of the report say that they felt the need to give early warning so that the corona vaccines and drugs being produced around the world should be made keeping in mind this changing form of the virus.
The report is based on a computer analysis of more than 6,000 corona virus cases worldwide, collected by the German organization Global Initiative for Sharing All Influenza data. In this analysis, it was found every time that the redesign of the corona has come to dominate the old.
