Don’t Count On Summer: WHO
March 07 Banepa.
Mike Ryan, executive director of WHO’s health emergencies programme, called for caution against the assumption, which has been proposed by some scientists, that Covid-19 – the disease caused by the new coronavirus – would subside in the summer like a seasonal flu.
“We have to assume the virus will continue to have the capacity to spread,” Ryan said in Geneva. “It’s a false hope to say, yes, that it will disappear like the flu.” He added that, while it would be a godsend, “we can’t make that assumption. And there is no evidence”.
