German Health Minister Lauterbach expects a possible coronavirus wave in Germany this autumn. The virus could “keep us busy for a long time – a decade or more”.
The Minister of Health believes it is possible that the coronavirus will remain for several decades: “I’m pretty sure that we’ll get an autumn wave. And Corona will keep us busy for a long time after that – a decade or more.” He pointed out that the HIV virus appeared 40 years ago – “and it’s still there”. Lauterbach said: “We always have to reckon with corona variants, and there can also be dangerous variants.”
