Scientists say Covid will be a scourge for a lot time yet, despite improved vaccines and vaccination rates and an apparent return to normal activities in many parts of the world.
Is Covid-19 winding down? Scientists say no way
Is the coronavirus on its way out?
You might think so. New, updated booster shots are being rolled out to better protect against the variants circulating now.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has dropped Covid-19 quarantine and distancing recommendations. And more people have thrown off their masks and returned to pre-pandemic activities.
But scientists say no. They predict the scourge that’s already lasted longer than the 1918 flu pandemic will linger far into the future.
