Virologist Prof Chris Oura says Covis 19 will become endemic

Virologist Professor Chris Oura believes that the Covid virus may become an endemic virus.

An endemic is a constant presence in a community.

It differs from a pandemic because the virus is somewhat contained and not spreading out of control.

Professor Oura told the Power Breakfast Show this morning that the Covid 19 virus is still dangerous but not as nasty as it was during the pandemic.

He believes it may even become seasonal like the common cold.

He said that it will still affect certain groups more seriously like the elderly and those with respiratory related illnesses.

He said that the younger population continues to fear better as they aren’t being seriously affected by the virus.

He insisted that persons should still take the virus seriously as he said it will not leave completely but continue to affect persons worldwide.
