New York: Coronavirus could very well become a “seasonal, cyclical” infection, based on the patterns it is exhibiting through its spread in the southern hemisphere, according to Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top infectious diseases scientist on the White House coronavirus task force.
“It totally emphasises the need to do what we’re doing in developing a vaccine, testing it quickly and trying to get it ready so that we’ll have the vaccine available for that next cycle”, Fauci said at a White House briefing Wednesday.
“We’re starting to see it now in the southern hemisphere where you’re having cases that are appearing as they go into their winter season. And if in fact they have a substantial outbreak, it will be inevitable that we need to be prepared that we’ll get a cycle around the second time”, Fauci explained.
Fauci said there is now enough data because multiple different countries have gone through various phases of their individual outbreaks. (IANS)
