New coronavirus clusters have surfaced around the world as nations struggle to balance reopening economies and preventing a second wave of infections, while executive director of World Health Organisation, Dr Michael Ryan said yesterday that COVID-19 could be around for a long time.
 
Dr. Michael Ryan said that it's possible the new coronavirus may be here to stay. Without a vaccine, he said it could take years for the global population to build up sufficient levels of immunity.
 
He added, This virus may become just another endemic virus in our communities, noting that other previously novel diseases like HIV have never disappeared, but that effective treatments have been developed.
