COVID-19 likely to be 'here to stay with us' as WHO warns virus will mutate like flu

WHO officials have previously said vaccines do not guarantee the world would eradicate COVID-19 like it has other viruses.

Several leading health experts, including White House chief medical advisor Dr Anthony Fauci and Stephane Bancel, CEO of Moderna, have warned that the world will have to live with Covid forever, much like influenza.

“The virus is telling us it’s going to throw out a lot of mutations,” infectious disease specialist Dr Jesse Goodman, ex-chief scientist at the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), said in an interview.

He added: “Even if we don’t have a critical situation right at the moment there’s a realistic possibility that variants will continue to evolve that have potential to avoid vaccine immunity.”
