A prominent scientist at the World Health Organization has warned that the world may need a period of time between 4 and 5 years in order to control the Corona epidemic.

The leading Indian scientist with the organization Sumaya Swaminathan said that the decisive factors for the long-term defeat of "Covid 19" include the evolution of the virus and preventive measures, and most importantly the development of a vaccine.

And Swaminathan, a pediatrician, considered that "the vaccine now seems the best way" to get out of the crisis, but pointed to the existence of obstacles related to its effectiveness and safety, in her comments to the British newspaper "Financial Times".

And I continued, "I say that within 4 or 5 years we can control this epidemic."

Another WHO official said earlier that the virus could become endemic, such as the HIV virus that causes AIDS, doubting any attempt to predict when it will continue to spread.

Mike Ryan, Executive Director of the WHO Emergency Program, said in an online press briefing: "It is important to put forward these words: This virus may just become another virus that is endemic in our societies. This virus may never disappear."

He added: "I think it is necessary to be realistic, and I do not imagine that anyone can predict when this disease will disappear. I see that there are no promises in this regard and there are no dates. This disease may settle to become a long-term problem, and it may not be so."

However, Ryan said the world had achieved some control over how it dealt with the disease, but it would take "tremendous efforts" even if a vaccine was reached, which he described as "a major achievement."

More than 100 possible vaccines are being developed, many of them in clinical trials, but experts have confirmed the difficulty of finding effective vaccines against the emerging corona virus.

Ryan noted that there are vaccines for other diseases, such as measles, and yet they have not been completely eradicated

Governments around the world are fighting over how to reopen their economies while continuing to contain the virus, which has infected nearly 4.3 million people, according to Reuters statistics, and has killed nearly 300,000.

Doctors in Italy have spoken of the first clear evidence linking Covid 19 disease caused by the emerging coronavirus, and a rare and serious disorder that affects autoimmune.

An autoimmune disorder is a disorder that affects the immune system while fighting what are believed to be foreign substances, causing it to mistakenly attack the body's own tissues.

According to the British newspaper "The Guardian", this sometimes requires that some children undergo life-saving treatment in the intensive care units, when they have corona.

This appears to be the latest find about the Corona virus, which scientists say they do not know much about, especially after it was found that it has many symptoms that go beyond the respiratory system, and its effects affect parts other than the lungs, as is well known.

And mysterious cases of the new exhibitor appeared last month, when health officials in Britain issued a warning to doctors, as a number of children were hospitalized with symptoms of strange nature.

These symptoms were a mixture of "toxic shock" and other symptoms that usually appear as a result of a defective immune system, known as "Kawasaki".

On Tuesday, a hospital in London announced the death of a 14-year-old, the first known death among children in Britain. Between 75 and 100 children are being treated for the Corona virus.

Symptoms of a new infection that affects children due to an immune system disorder include: fever, rash, red eyes, chapped lips, and abdominal pain.

Doctors suspected that corona plays a role in the disorder that affects children, which provokes an excessive immune response to them.

However, this suspicion was confirmed in Italy, specifically in Bergamo, in the north of the country, the city most affected by Corona, as records there showed that the children's cases of "Kawasaki" had risen to 10 after the epidemic arrived, compared to three before it.

Of the 10 children treated for this disorder between mid-February and mid-April, 8 were found to be infected with the emerging coronavirus.

And even the other two cases, the doctors said that their negative diagnosis was wrong.

Officials at the Elysee Palace said Thursday that officials from the French company "Sanofi" for the pharmaceutical industry will attend a high-level meeting in the presidential palace next week.

The company had stated that the vaccines it manufactures in the United States may go to American patients first have aroused President Emmanuel Macron's anger.

The official said, "These statements have offended all concerned, starting with the president."

He added that he has no knowledge of any direct contact by telephone with Paul Hudson, Chief Executive Officer "Sanofi".

He continued, saying: "Next week, a meeting will be held in the Elysee to try to overcome this and work together." It is not yet clear who will attend the meeting.

In the context of the same, Chief Executive Officer of "Sanofi" Paul Hodson said, today, it is necessary to reach any vaccine for the virus Corona to all regions, hours after the government warned the French giant pharmaceutical to suggest that some countries will receive the priority of the arrival of the vaccine.

Hudson said he regretted his remarks on Wednesday that any vaccine developed by Sanofi in the United States could go to American patients, pointing to the need for a real debate in Europe about how the bloc countries move collectively and faster in the search for a new vaccine and that "Sanofi" were paid The block for months to do so.

A spokesman for Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that any trade agreement with the United States should be in Britain’s interests and its imports should meet “food safety standards”.

The security authorities in North Darfur state announced that they have closed all borders with South Darfur state to prevent the escape of those involved in the recent violence.

On Wednesday, 30 people were killed and dozens injured, as a result of a renewed tribal conflict between the "Fallata" and "Rizeigat" tribes in areas of the state of South Darfur, after which military reinforcements were deployed to prevent the expansion of the armed conflict after the emergence of large concentrations of the two parties.

The North Darfur State Security Committee said in a statement: "We announce the tightening of the procedures to close the state's borders with the state of South Darfur to prevent infiltration of the spoilers who caused these events and prevent the spoil of lootings."

The security committee, chaired by the governor of the state, Major General Malik Al-Tayeb Khojali, announced its readiness to fully cooperate with the authorities of the state of South Darfur, to implement all measures that would restore security, stability and conditions to normal.


British media reported that Prime Minister Boris Johnson will set a five-degree warning system for the Corona virus emerging in England on Sunday when he explains the government's plans to gradually start easing public isolation measures.

Johnson is scheduled to deliver a speech at 18 GMT, during which he will announce the next steps in Britain's battle against the pandemic that led to the imposition of general isolation measures that halted almost entirely economic activities and kept millions in their homes for nearly seven weeks.

The media said that Johnson will announce the details of a five-degree warning system for England ranging from green, the first level to the red, and the fifth level, to determine the extent of risk from Covid-19 in different regions to allow the government to increase restrictions in places where this is required.

The rest of the United Kingdom, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, has powers to define general isolation measures, but it is expected to remain generally consistent with what the government declares in England.

Color discrimination systems are already used in other countries as they begin to reduce isolation measures, including France and India.
