Doctor-expert on public health and healthcare organization Evgeny Kovalev proposed his own version of the scenario for the further development of events with the coronavirus. In his opinion, due to the high rate of mutations, the disease will remain with us for a long time, although it will weaken (however, this still has to wait). “We can expect up to three waves of covid a year. The coronavirus is likely to displace half of the SARS. Apparently, we will have to combine vaccines,”suggested Kovalev. The doctor is sure that protective masks will stay with us forever: they will have to be worn in crowded places so as not to get infected with covid during the next epidemic wave. Kovalev recommends giving preference to N95 / FFP2 class respirators. However, according to the physician, the alternative is vaccination, which gives hope that "the coronavirus will not remain a companion of humanity." However, for the disappearance of COVID-2019, the development of population immunity is necessary, and this will take a long time. Earlier, American scientists made a forecast as to what the situation with coronavirus in the world will be like in 10 years. According to experts, SARS-CoV-2 will become endemic, and immunity to it after a disease suffered in childhood in a mild form will persist for the rest of your life. They proceeded from the fact that coronaviruses of the HCoV family are spreading very actively, and almost everyone carries them in childhood in the form of a runny nose, and then they no longer get sick. Researchers believe that in 10 years, people will get sick with COVID-2019 at the age of three to five years and suffer the disease with symptoms of a mild cold. Even if later, in adulthood, they become infected again, they will again suffer a mild illness. The vaccine, according to American scientists, will not be needed, since it gives only short-term protection against infection.
