In this regard, Bloomberg writes about the likely constant presence of Covid-19 and its mutations in people's lives, and no means can save humanity from all new strains of this scourge.

According to Klute, if the development of this virus continues as it is now, the world will face an endless series of quarantines and remissions, as well as restrictive social measures and indulgences. Residents of rich countries will be vaccinated annually, but this will not help achieve the desired result.
One of the organizers of the World History Forum, Klaus Schwab, also speaks of the possibility of a continuous pandemic. He believes that although Covid-19 does not pose a threat to the existence of mankind, the world will never return to a "dock-like" lifestyle. CNN's international security editor Nick Paton Walsh is confident that people from now on will always wear antiviral masks - it will become a part of our lives.
