After England announced its end to all Covid curbs, this announcement comes as a surprise. Dr Kluge, European director of the World Health Organisation, said: “It’s plausible that (Europe) is moving towards a kind of pandemic endgame.

“There will be, for quite some weeks and months, a global immunity, either thanks to the vaccine or because people have immunity due to the infection. So we anticipate there will be a period of quiet before Covid-19 may come back towards the end of the year, but not necessarily the pandemic coming back.”

He said Omicron may infect 60 per cent of Europeans by March — leading to widespread immunity. This variant is more contagious than other strains, but it has less severe symptoms.

On March 24, all Covid laws in England will be repealed. The population will learn to live with Covid just like it does with flu.

But Dr Kluge warned: “There is a lot of talk about (it becoming) endemic but endemic means that it is possible to ­predict what’s going to happen.

“The virus has surprised us more than once so we have to be very careful.”

Yesterday saw the detection of 74,799 coronavirus cases in the UK, with 75 deaths.
