The CEO of Covid-19 vaccine maker Moderna warned Wednesday that the coronavirus that has brought world economies to a standstill and overwhelmed hospitals will be around “forever.”
Public health officials and infectious disease experts have said there is a high likelihood that Covid-19 will become an endemic disease, meaning it will become present in communities at all times, though likely at lower levels than it is now.
Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel appeared to agree Wednesday that Covid-19 will become endemic, saying “SARS-CoV-2 is not going away.”
“We are going to live with this virus, we think, forever,” he said during a panel discussion at the JPMorgan Healthcare Conference.

How about we just write them a really big check and get this over with?
I bet he does.
Sounds like a future profit center.
It will be as common as the common cold (remember that critter?)
How’s that different from the constantly mutating seasonal ‘flu?
then what the hell are they marketing a vaccine for?
The shttheads behind the lockdowns did a shttload of harm for no purpose (other than, perhaps, to do harm)
Of course, like the flu or colds. It’s a minor bug. Spray Lysol.
And don’t start the left wing lies Fearbros.
One third of mankind...could it be. It’s been foretold in scripture. Could be, doesn’t everyone paying attention have that thought?
Because there’s more mandated money for this one.
Yeah its called the FLU..been around forever, you live with it, no biggie, you dont stop living because of it
Well, flu is still around. So is measles, pertussis, chickenpox etc. Only smallpox is gone.
But with the help of vaccines and herd immunity, we’ve been doing just fine—wituout masks, social distancing, lockdowns, etc.
We can beat covid, too—and open up again!!!!
it's never far away from my thoughts.
We’ve seen how it comes with masks. And that the sages say, “Purim is forever.”
And besides, how many of those hand sanitizer brands incorporate some form of “Pur” in their names.
Nothing is coincidence.
Was this an excerpt from the onion or the dnc platform?
Translation: We’re going to be $ticking it to you for a long time to come. Roll up your sleeve again and again.
Strange how all these plagues seemed to have followed the third world conveys over our borders
“then what the hell are they marketing a vaccine for?”
It’s marketed as something to build immunity to the virus, not something that will eliminate it from the environment.
