Sars-CoV-2 may never disappear again according to WHO


The emergency aid coordinator of the World Health Organisation (WHO) is sceptical that the new coronavirus can still be eliminated after its rapid spread around the globe.

There is a small chance to eradicate the new virus Sars-CoV-2, which can cause the dangerous lung disease Covid-19. However, a highly effective vaccine would have to be found, it would have to be produced in sufficient quantities and distributed all over the world and people would have to agree to be vaccinated.

Current drug candidates for Covid-19 flop

A malaria drug and an anti-AIDS drug do not help Covid patients, show observational study in New York and a Chinese study. From the beginning of the Covid 19 pandemic onwards, potential experimental therapies have repeatedly emerged. Two of them, the malaria drug chloroquine and the AIDS drug lopinavir/ritonavir, apparently have no positive effect according to the latest studies.
