American Dr Anthony Fauci believes even an effective vaccine may be available it may not be enough to help eradicate the disease. The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the US National Institutes of Health said that there may be a need to re-vaccinate people intermittently, if COVID-19 becomes endemic, speaking at a webinar hosted by London think tank Chatham House. „It may be something that becomes endemic, that we have to just be careful about,” he added. Dr Fauci emphasised that we need the ability to make billions of doses of vaccine and not only for the rich countries to win the battle against the virus.
“We need billions [of doses], so whether you live in the darkest part of the developing world, or if you live in London, you should have the same access.”At this time, coronavirus number cases is increasing all around in the world. The U.S. is now counting more than 100,000 cases a day as the virus surges across the country. Russia has reported its worst day for new infections, with 21,983 confirmed on Friday. Merkel has warned Germans to expect “difficult winter months”. Sweden, whose unorthodox virus-fighting strategy has garnered global attention, registered 5,990 new cases on Friday; the highest since the start of the pandemic.
