Coronavirus UK update: Could the virus be here to stay? Expert gives his prediction

Professor John Oxford, a virologist from Queen Mary University of London, has suggested the likelihood of the virus returning every winter is probable.

Professor Oxford bases his prediction on patterns of previous forms of coronavirus, which have also infected people in waves.

Speaking to The Sunday Telegraph, Professor Oxford warned it had “enough characteristics” similar to the viruses we’ve known about for the last 50 years for it to eventually “settle down and become seasonal”.

He continued: “It’s a question of crystal ball gazing but if you look at other members of the coronavirus family, that are respiratory viruses and we’ve known about them for the last 50 years or more, they’re seasonal.”
