After over two years of living with the SARs-CoV-2 virus, many scientists have come to the fore and suggested that the pandemic may be finally coming to an end. Even though new variants continue to emerge, experts are of the opinion that the virus is unlikely to take a severe turn.
Earlier, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said that after a two-and-a-half years-long struggle, the world is now in a good position to end the pandemic. “But it is still a long way off, and the tunnel is still dark, with many obstacles that could trip us up if we don’t take care,” he had said.
That said, while we can take a sigh of relief, we should not lower our guard. It is still important to take precautionary measures, still important to isolate when one tests positive for the virus and most importantly, it is extremely crucial that you inform people who have come in close contact with you about your diagnosis.
