Professor says COVID-19 could become common cold

(ORDO NEWS) — Professor Dame Sarah Gilbert spoke about the fact that SARS-CoV-2 may soon turn into the most common coronavirus, a variety of strains of which are found in huge numbers in nature. A similar statement from one of the creators of the Oxford / AstraZeneca vaccine was made during a speech at the Royal Society of Medicine webinar.

The Evening Standard reports.

Today we are fully living with four different types of coronavirus that we don’t even think about. As a result, Sars-CoV-2 may well join their ranks. The only thing is that experts cannot say for sure how long it will take for this to happen and what measures will have to be taken in the future to speed up the process.

The specialist also added that today it is necessary to start preparing for other pandemics that may occur soon. Investing small amounts now will save billions in the future.

People need to be able to respond in time to outbreaks of disease as soon as they can be detected. This will help to contain the pathology in one place and prevent it from spreading further, turning into a dangerous pandemic. It was also noted that obtaining a vaccine through a Phase II trial, as well as generating enough samples for emergencies, would save a huge amount of money in the future.
