Coronavirus could burn out naturally, claims Professor Karol Sikora a former director of the World Health Organisation.This welcome news comes amid a scramble by world leaders to find a covid 19 vaccine.
The UK Government for example announced a £90 million campaign to produce avaccine.
Professor Sikora, an oncologist and chief medical officer at Rutherford Health, said the public probably has more immunity to Covid-19 than realised.
He thought the virus could end up “petering out by itself”.Explaining more on social media he explained:
“There is a real chance that the virus will burn out naturally before any vaccine is developed.
“We are seeing a roughly similar pattern everywhere – I suspect we have more immunity than estimated.
“We need to keep slowing the virus, but it could be petering out by itself.”
It’s hoped to be open in summer 2021 – 12 months ahead of schedule.
