German Health Institute says COVID-19 pandemic may last 2 years


Lothar Wieler, President of Robert Koch Institute in Germany on Tuesday said coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic might go on for two years and develop in waves.

“The pandemic is developing in waves. We know this is exactly the case. But how fast are these waves? And when will this pandemic infect the projected 60 to 70 per cent of the world’s population? This can take years. We project it to be two years.’’

He added that the appearance of a vaccine or any intervention in the course of the pandemic would be useful.

“The sooner the vaccine is available, the sooner we will manage to contain this pandemic. But even when we get a vaccine, it does not mean that everyone will be vaccinated since it is connected with the amount of the vaccine.’’

According to the Koch Institute, there have been over 6,000 coronavirus cases in the country including 13 fatalities.
