(ORDO NEWS) — The coronavirus continues to actively spread across the planet and provoke new infections and deaths. British experts have made completely new predictions about the pandemic and how long it will still last.
The news, which did not delight anyone, was reported by the staff of the SCI Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies, SAGE. They are confident that the pandemic will end no earlier than the end of 2026.
At the same time, experts emphasize that if the rate of vaccination increases, then in this case, it may be possible to cope with the disease much faster. An example was the stabilization of the epidemiological situation in the UK after most of the population was vaccinated. In this case, it is said that there are still cases of infection and their number is increasing, but at the same time the number of hospitalizations and deaths has noticeably decreased. But still, this is not enough to completely defeat the virus.
SARS-CoV-2, as before, poses a serious threat to the healthcare system, so it is necessary to closely monitor the situation, monitor the rate of vaccination and monitor additional data over the next 5 years.
Scientists are also worried about the new Omicron coronavirus strain. They suggest that in some countries, the emergence of the virus could trigger the emergence of new waves of coronavirus. Omicron is considered to be more infectious than other types of the virus and therefore can pose a serious threat.
