America’s top coronavirus expert has warned Covid-19 is the new normal – and that the killer virus might never go away.
Asked about how life could return to normal without a vaccine, White House immunologist Dr Anthony Fauci said:
‘If back to normal means acting like there never was a coronavirus problem, I don’t think that’s going to happen until we do have a situation where you can completely protect the population. But when we say getting back to normal we mean something very different from what we’re going through right now, because right now we are in a very intense mitigation. When we go back to normal we will go back very gradually to the point where we can function as a society. But you’re absolutely right, if you want to get to pre-coronavirus, that might not ever happen in the sense that, the fact that the threat is there.’
