The coronavirus could become a “bit like the flu” once an effective vaccine is developed according to Chief Health Officer Dr Kerry Chant.
However, Ms Chant expressed doubt a completely successful inoculation could be developed saying “it’s unlikely the vaccine will eliminate COVID”.
She suggested various infection control practices such as mask-wearing could remain “important going forward” for the Australian people.
“We are increasingly battling COVID and how COVID evolves,” Ms Chant said.
