WHO: Pandemic Will Last 4-5 Years or Maybe Forever

Remember when the point of the lockdowns was to prevent hospitals from becoming overrun by an initial spike of patients before they had time to prepare? That isn’t the issue anymore. Now the issue is, how to get authoritarians to give up power, once they have gotten their claws on it? Already the World Health Organization, allied with the Chinese Communist Party and championed by the Democrat Party, says it will be years before it is safe for authorities to lift their shoe from our faces.

CNBC quotes WHO Chief Scientist Soumya Swaminathan:

“I would say in a four to five-year timeframe, we could be looking at controlling this.”

A vaccine could end it, but there may never be a vaccine. Also, there are concerns about the hypothetical vaccine’s “equitable distribution.” How could egalitarians allow anyone (other than themselves) to have a vaccine until everyone on the planet can have it?

Considering the reception hydroxychloroquine has received, an effective vaccine may not be welcome even if scientists come up with one.

Why 4-5 years and not some other number? A frog needs to be boiled gradually, lest it jump out of the pot. If authorities had admitted at the beginning of the lockdowns that the Flatten the Curve strategy means this could go on indefinitely, people might have rebelled. They pick arbitrary time periods they think people will accept, then move the goalposts before we get there.

Swaminathan stresses successful confinement measures as a factor determining how long the pandemic lasts. This means that the way to relieve the repression is to increase the repression. Tyranny is cleverer now than it was in Stalin’s time.

At a separate media briefing, Dr. Mike Ryan, executive director of the WHO’s emergencies program, said at the organization’s Geneva headquarters on Wednesday that the coronavirus “may never go away.”

The COVID-19 crisis will end when it becomes clear that people won’t put up with it any longer. No sooner.
