We might not need a vaccine after all, says Prof. Karol Sikora.
With many countries currently racing to create a vaccine against the coronavirus, a health expert who previously served as a director for the World Health Organization (WHO) says it might not be necessary after all.
The former chief of WHO’s Cancer Program, Professor Karol Sikora believes there is a possibility that the coronavirus may “burn out naturally.” Not surprisingly, his tweet has since made headlines and has gained mixed reactions.
Now Rutherford Health’s chief medical office and a leading oncologist, Prof. Sikora wrote on Twitter:
“There is a real chance that the virus will burn out naturally before any vaccine is developed. We are seeing a roughly similar pattern everywhere – I suspect we have more immunity than estimated. We need to keep slowing the virus, but it could be petering out by itself.”
While others since have praised the British physician’s “optimistic” take on the pandemic, others have started questioning – even bashing – him for “giving people false hope.”
He later defended his claims, saying:
“It is my opinion that this is a feasible scenario. Nobody is claiming to know what will happen for sure – I believe in an unknown situation this is a possibility.
“We need to continue to keep our distance and hope the numbers continue to improve.”
