By BBN Staff: A former Chief Scientific Advisor to the United Kingdom (UK) says that SARS-CoV2, the virus responsible for the disease COVID-19, will continue to exist in one form and that people will need to be routinely vaccinated against it.
Following comments made on Friday by World Health Organization (WHO) Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus that the pandemic could be over in two years, the BBC quotes Sir Mark Walport of the UK’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage) as saying “This is a virus that is going to be with us forever in some form or another, and almost certainly will require repeated vaccinations,” he said.
Sir Walport added that it was possible for the virus to get out of control in Europe once again and that solutions other than lockdowns would be required to address it.
The WHO last week took the position that the economic fallout resulting from lockdowns posed too great a problem economically for countries, and advised against such lockdowns where possible.
Prime Minister Dean Barrow, said that the Government of Belize had already resolved to find alternative means to another nationwide
lockdown, but felt validated to know that the decision was in line with WHO recommendations.
