Epidemiologist about the world’s fight against the virus

The other day, the head of the world health organization (who) Tedros Ghebreyesus said that humanity will not be able to defeat the coronavirus epidemic. At the moment, according to Gebreyesus, there is no drug or vaccine that can destroy SARS-CoV-2.

The statement of the head of who can be interpreted in different ways. The first thing Gebreyesus had in mind was the lack of resources and knowledge to fight the coronavirus. In the fight against the virus, we completely forgot about the fact that our body and environment contain many viruses with which we live and interact constantly. And the coronavirus is allegedly to blame for everything.

However, few people think about the pathogenicity of the virus. In previous studies, scientists have found that the pathogenicity (that is, the ability to cause pathology) of SARS-CoV-2 is not so high.

If you look at the death waves over the past ten years, you can see that in 2020, the death rate is one and a half times lower than in the previous couple of years.

Then why are we fighting this virus? Flu vaccination has almost completely eliminated and weakened the flu, and in its place came the coronavirus. And it is good that it is a coronavirus, because it is not dangerous. It is we who have fanned the panic and continue to panic – the epidemiologist believes.
According to Gundarov, it is not worth fighting such a virus, since it is no worse than ordinary herpes-a virus that everyone has. It manifests itself, for example, in the form of rashes on the lip when the immune system weakens. But this does not mean that a person is terminally ill with a terrible disease.
