Academician of RAS, honored scientist of Russia, Professor of the Lomonosov Moscow state University Sergey Kolesnikov has expressed concerns that the new type of coronavirus is quite able to settle in the human body on a regular basis, as does, for example, the herpes virus.

according to “Parlamentskaya Gazeta,” Kolesnikov in an interview with reporters did not rule out that the new coronavirus can settle in the body of the carrier on a regular basis, as it makes the herpes virus.

“most Likely, COVID-19 will repeat the fate of the four other coronaviruses that exist in the human population… let’s See what will happen next…. God forbid, however, the coronavirus will live chronically in the human body… as we have the herpes virus, some other infection,” said the scientist.
