At 21 o'clock on March 2nd, Beijing time, Zhong Nanshan, academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, attended the International Epidemic Prevention and Control Expert Seminar organized by the University of Edinburgh in Guangzhou, and had a live dialogue with Dr. Fauci, a famous American infectious disease expert, to discuss global anti-epidemic cooperation And other topics.
Academician Zhong mentioned that the coronavirus has hit humans three times in this century.
Both he and Fauci emphasized in the dialogue that mankind must remember the painful lessons brought about by this epidemic.
In response to the divergent "herd immunity", Zhong Nanshan believes that some unscientific and inhumane "natural immunity" methods cannot be used to achieve the effect of herd immunity.
With the development of vaccines and the successive launches, Zhong Nanshan feels that it will take at least 2-3 years to achieve herd immunity worldwide.
