Scientists are warning the world to brace for more of what we have been through. The pandemic won’t end until everyone gets infected or fully vaccinated.

According to the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota in the US, the world could see another surge this fall and winter. With billions of people around the world still unvaccinated, we can expect more transmissions in classrooms, on public transportation, and in workplaces over the coming months, as economies push ahead with reopening.
