NPR: Fauci says COVID-19 won’t go away like smallpox, but will more likely become endemic

He said no one knows how exactly things will play out, but considering smallpox is the only disease humans have completely eradicated, he is confident COVID-19 will not be the next. Dr. Fauci also remarked on the possibility of a less dangerous variant of COVID-19 becoming an endemic similar to flu. He believes it is possible to reach this stage with the Omicron variant, barring the mutation of a new more lethal variant. The full article by Scott Neuman can be read here on NPR.
