COVID-19 pandemic could last up to 2 years, according to US experts
- A new report from researchers at the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy lays out three scenarios for how the coronavirus pandemic will progress in the coming months.
- Using the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic as a model, experts suggested the COVID-19 outbreak will last between 18 and 24 months.
- The pandemic “likely won’t be halted until 60% to 70% of the population is immune,” the report authors said.
- The worst of the three scenarios they outline involves a second, larger wave of coronavirus infections this fall and winter.
