Ryan further added “I think there are no promises in this and there are no dates. This disease may settle into a long problem, or it may not be”

According to Michael Ryan, no one can predict when or if Coronavirus will disappear because it’s a new virus entering the human population for the first time.

“HIV has not gone away – but we have come to terms with the virus.”

World Health Organization’s Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus emphasized that “The trajectory is in our hands” according to her it’s everybody’s business, and we should all contribute to stop coronavirus.
