WHO says Covid will mutate like the flu and is likely here to stay

So who directs and coordinates the world’s response to health emergencies 

Executive Director of emergencies program Mike Ryan spoke at a news conference on the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) in Geneva, Switzerland.

He said pretty much Covid-19 is not going anywhere. In his words“I think this virus is here to stay with us and it will evolve like influenza pandemic viruses, it will evolve to become one of the other viruses that affects us, he went on to say “People have said we’re going to eliminate or eradicate the virus,”. “No we’re not, very, very unlikely.”

WHO officials said.

If the world had taken early steps to stop the spread of the virus, the situation today could have been very different, “We had a chance in the beginning of this pandemic,” “This pandemic did not need to be this bad.”

Well covid might not be going anywhere but that 21 foot statue of Robert Lee in Virgina is. Today crews began the process of removing the last Confederate statue remaining along Richmond’s historic Monument Avenue.

It’s being reported that The statue came down just before 9 a.m. ET as the crowd chanted, “na, na, na, na. Hey, hey, hey, goodbye” and “Black Lives Matter.”

Lawrence West, founder of BLM RVA, told CNN Tuesday it is “very satisfying, gratifying” that the statue was being removed. His group has occupied the space surrounding the Lee monument — unofficially dubbed by protesters the Marcus-David Peters Circle in honor of a Black teacher who was killed by police while experiencing a “mental health crisis” — since June 2020 amid protests over Floyd’s death.
