When will coronavirus end? Show more Show less
Back to question

It is July 28th, 2020. With lockdowns easing all over the world, some say a second wave of coronavirus will come into force by the end of the year. Others that the pandemic will fade. Is this true? How long before we get rid of the coronavirus?

The coronavirus pandemic may never end Show more Show less

AIDs, the flu, herpes, chickenpox... there are a number of viruses we haven't eradicated yet. These viruses continue to impact society in different ways.

Possible cross infection may retain the survival and increase the strength of the virus

The Argument

The spread of coronavirus and the flu virus at the same time may continue and worsen the outbreak. With the two viruses circulating in large amounts in the winter, scientists predict that the coronavirus may combine with the flu virus in the winter, resulting in a stronger mutated virus. This will lead to another stronger outbreak, making it very difficult to end the coronavirus as it is getting stronger. Even if the two viruses do not combine, the presence of coronavirus and flu-virus cases will overwhelm the healthcare system and may result in overcrowding and some people losing access to healthcare. Since both viruses have similar symptoms, it will also be very difficult to distinguish between a flu case and coronavirus case, making it very difficult to end the virus.
