Is it possible that the coronavirus might just disappear?

I had a talk with my mum about the search for a COVID-19 vaccine and mum said the virus may disappear on its' own, like other viruses in history hjave.

The idea doesn't seem too farfetched. What do you think?

    The Spanish Flu took 2 years to die out. She most probably thinks this will do the same.

    Who knows?

    Not if people keep being idiots and breaking all the COVID rules.

    No, not entirely.  It will always be around in some form. The virulent nature is disturbing, but then it is a SARS varient.  Hopefully it will mutate into something less lethal.  Virus' mutate which is why we have new flu vaxs each year.

    Of course. The current coronavirus is so similar to the SARS-CoV coronavirus that it shares its name ("SARS-CoV-2"). The "original" SARS virus did in fact disappeared on its own.

    Mum has a simplistic view on the subject. Ask her for examples of what she speaks.

    Our experts already considered that.

    What your mother is referring to is herd immunity. We were hoping for it but it's unlikely because the antibodies last in our bodies for only a few weeks. 

    If herd immunity worked. It would have worked in California. It was the first to realize and do shelter in place but consistently stayed a hotspot.

    What other viruses does your "mum" think have just disappeared?

    ---------

    @IOM - The virus that caused SARS didn't "disappear."  It still exists, and still causes disease.  Just not at rates high enough to qualify as an epidemic.
