Experts say COVID-19 is here to stay

As COVID-19 continues to mutate and spread, experts say the virus isn’t going away any time soon. Data from Europe and Asia shows a new sub-variant of the COVID-19 Omicron variant that is harder to detect could be the latest mutation.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the president’s Chief Medical Advisor, says a vaccine that targets all COVID-19 strains is needed, but people shouldn’t expect it anytime soon, according to WETM.

“I don’t want anyone to think that pan coronavirus vaccines are literally around the corner in a month or two,” said Fauci. “It’s going to take years to develop.”

Top medical officials say eradicating the COVID-19 virus entirely is unlikely. Rather, Fauci is hoping the U.S. gets to a point where the virus is under a “level of control that does not disrupt us in society.”
