      Digital Desk: Covid-19 infections will persist, but the pandemic's end is close; a report published in the Lancet states that "Covid-19 will return after the Omicron wave, but the pandemic will not." "Covid-19 will become yet another recurring disease that health systems and societies must deal with. The age of governments and society taking exceptional steps to restrict SARS-CoV-2 spread will come to an end." according to the report. Further, the report said, "Immunity, whether acquired from infection or vaccination, will diminish, allowing SARS-CoV-2 transmission to persist. In addition, countries may expect higher potential transmission in the winter months due to seasonality." However, the impact of the virus will be reduced, according to the study. "The effects of future SARS-CoV-2 transmission on health will be less because of widespread previous exposure to the virus, regularly adapted vaccines to new antigens or variants, the advent of antivirals, and the knowledge that the vulnerable can protect themselves during future waves when needed by using high-quality masks and physical distance," the report said. According to the report, "The most recent omicron peaks are expected in nations where the Omicron wave are yet to begin. Increased SARS-CoV-2 testing, for example, is likely to cause more disruption by removing more people from work or school, but it is unlikely to affect the omicron wave's trajectory." "Covid-19 control techniques must be reset in the omicron era. Attempts to contact trace appear to be hopeless, given the speed and strength of the omicron wave. "It stated. The report also emphasized how governments and society worldwide have worked to adapt to the pandemic and how it has transformed and saved lives.
