In an interview Thursday with a Spanish newspaper El PaisDr Ian Lipkin, director of the Center for Infection and Immunity at the Mailman School of Public Health in Columbia, said the new coronavirus may never go away.
Through Newsweek, who published a translation of the interview, Lipkin said that the public will have to adapt and learn to “live the rest of their life with this virus”.
“It will be a recurring problem. I don’t think life will be completely normal again.
Lipkin said it is likely that future generations will be vaccinated against COVID-19, but noted that additional booster doses may be needed. The expert described progress in vaccine development is “narcotic”, suggesting that vaccines developed by Moderna and Pfizer will be able to significantly reduce the spread of the virus.
However, Lipkin stressed that there could be logistical challenges and the distribution will not be easy.
“We will be able to distribute these vaccines in most European and American countries But getting them to developing countries will be a big challenge ”. he said.
Pfizer and BioNTech announced earlier this month that their candidate was 95% effective in stopping the coronavirus, while Moderna said its mRNA-1273 was 94.5% effective. However, none of the vaccines can be stored at standard refrigeration temperatures, which could be a major problem in some parts of the world.
The final objective is to achieve “global group immunity”, according to Lipkin, who explained that between 60 and 80 percent of the world’s population must be immunized before normalcy is restored.
Governments around the world have implemented public health measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus, some with more success than others. China, where the virus is believed to originate, has been very successful in controlling the pandemic.
Lipkin – who helped the Chinese government during the 2003 SARS outbreak and advised Saudi Arabia during the MERS outbreak – has suggested that it is unrealistic to expect Western governments to get it the same results.
“In China, if the government decides to do something, it’s done. It’s not like in Spain or the United States where there can be a debate on containments and closures ”. he said.
The expert concluded the interview on a more optimistic note, saying that the coronavirus crisis “has also demonstrated our ability to respond with science, compassion and a common goal.”
According to demographics site Worldometer, more than 61 million cases of the coronavirus have been recorded worldwide to date and nearly 1.5 million people have died from complications caused by the disease.
Within 12 months, more than 100 million people will die of hunger. The Third World is deliberately collapsed by the globalists in order to establish UN control over Western civilization.
