Covid-19 Will Not Be Eradicated - Chinese Scientists Predict

The coronavirus that is ravaging the globe will not be eradicated and will instead return as a seasonal virus like the flu, according to Chinese scientists.     

A group of Chinese viral and medical researchers told reporters in Beijing on Monday that the virus will likely not disappear like SARS did because it can infect asymptomatic carriers.

This means that people can spread the virus without experiencing its symptoms like a fever and cough, making it difficult to track its spread.  

The researchers added that Chinese health officials are still confirming dozens of asymptomatic carriers every day.
