Nigel Farage stunned as expert tells him coronavirus 'very likely' to stay in UK forever

Cambridge University’s Dr Chris Smith told the Brexit Party leader that the novel coronavirus is “twice as good at spreading through humans as flu” and that it is “very likely” COVID-19 will become a “circulating virus” within the human population. Dr Smith also stated that there are a total of seven coronaviruses that affect humans including four common and repetitive viruses. 

Mr Farage said: “There is something where these viruses emerge and we develop a herd immunity against them.

“Is that the most likely outcome given the history of viruses?”

Dr Smith replied: “Well with this one it is very good at spreading, it is probably twice as good at spreading through humans as the flu is.

“The flu entrenches itself within the human population and then circulates year after year, evolving slowly as it does so.

“So the natural outcome for this virus is that it is probably going to establish itself alongside the existing four natural winter coronaviruses that come and give us seasonal colds and things.

“There are currently six coronaviruses that affect humans, one of them is SARS which luckily hasn’t come back.

“Another one is MERS-CoV which is in camels and bats and occasionally people in the middle east, that emerged in 2012.

“Then there are four fairly repetitive and common coronaviruses.
