WHO Advisor: 2/3 of the world's inhabitants can become infected with coronavirus
Airo Longini, adviser to the World Health Organization, said that up to two-thirds of the world's population can become infected with a new type of coronavirus. According to him, this will happen under an unfavorable scenario.
According to Longini, cited by the agency Bloomberg, each infected under normal conditions infects another two or three people. Even if you reduce this figure by half, a third of the inhabitants of the Earth will become infected with the virus.
Quarantine measures, in his opinion, can slow down the spread of the virus. However, measures were taken after the coronavirus managed to penetrate into other parts of China and other countries.
According to the latest data, more than 1 people have died from the new type of coronavirus in China. A fatal case from the virus was reported in Japan.
