"We all hope that this year the pandemic should end and go into endemic form. The virus will not disappear obviously," the head of the National Center for Disease Control, Amiran Gamkrelidze, stated.
According to him, the way to end the pandemic is through vaccination.
"The pandemic caused by this type of coronavirus, if it obeys the evolutionary laws that the respiratory viruses obey, must end. There is a lot of evidence that this may be the beginning of the end of the pandemic, but of course, this should not encourage us. This path goes through vaccination again and again. It will end and will do less damage to the countries where the will be maximum coverage of vaccination," Amiran Gamkrelidze said.
