As we already that the virus first emerged within China last year in 2019 within the city of Wuhan which has now infected around 4-5 million people worldwide and around 300,000 people are now killed with this deadly infection. Many governments worldwide are now easing down the lockdown as it has severely affected the economy of the countries and people are now willing to live with this condition while taking preventive measures when going at the workplace or other social places. Michael Ryan who is the director of EHO emergencies said that this is a new type of virus that has infected the entire world, it is because of this reason that we are unable to find out the exact prevalence rate of this deadly virus. He further told the virtual press conference which was conducted in Geneva that this virus must remain in our communities as some other endemic and this virus might never go away. As we already that HIV is still present in our society as it is still prevalent and we have learned to live with it without any highly effective treatment options.
