The coronavirus pandemic may last until 2022, according to a report published by a group of researchers at the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP).

Experts suggest that the COVID-19 outbreak won’t end until 60% to 70% of the human population is immune to the virus, which may take between 18 and 24 months. The experts laid out three scenarios for how the coronavirus pandemic will progress. The worst-case scenario among these three projections involves a second, larger wave of infections this fall and winter. The report authors suggest this is the most likely outcome, and countries need to prepare for it.

The researchers using the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic as a model, suggested that the COVID-19 outbreak will end in coming 18 – 24 months.
