Coronavirus infection will never be completely eradicated, even after vaccination. It will pass into the category of seasonal. This was stated by Jonathan Van Tam, England’s Deputy Chief Medical Officer.
At the same time, the doctor noted that the habits acquired through the pandemic will remain with humanity: the use of medical masks and antiseptics. He reminded that poorly ventilated and crowded rooms continue to pose the greatest danger to COVID-19 infection.
Van Tam was positive about the certification of the American-German Coronavirus vaccine in Britain. According to him, many different drugs from different manufacturers are needed to successfully fight the infection.
The specialist emphasized that the infection has not yet been defeated. “The worst thing now is to assume that we can relax, that the game and the fight against COVID are over. This is not the case. This is not the end,” he said.
On December 2, Britain approved a coronavirus vaccine jointly produced by US company Pfizer and German company BioNTech. The vaccine will be available throughout the UK starting next week.
