(ANSA) – ROME, SEPTEMBER 23 – The coronavirus pandemic will end in a year: this is the forecast by Stéphane Bancel, CEO of Moderna, the biotechnology company that produces the homonymous Covid vaccine.
Interviewed by the Swiss newspaper Neue Zuercher Zeitung, Bancel said that “by the middle of next year” there should be sufficient doses of vaccines so that the entire world population can be immunized.
“We should soon be able to vaccinate even children aged five to eleven and, at a later stage, those aged six months and older,” he continued. “Those who do not get vaccinated will naturally immunize because the Delta variant is so contagious. We will end up in a situation similar to that of the flu: you can get vaccinated and have a good winter, or you don’t and you risk getting sick and maybe even ending up in hospital “.
Then answering the question whether this means that we will return to normal in the second half of 2022, Bancel said: “As of today, in a year, I presume”. (HANDLE).
