Within the next year, Pfizer CEO Albert Burla estimated the end of the pandemic, adding that the coronavirus would then develop into a seasonal flu.
Albert Boula, speaking to ABC News, was asked about the statements of Moderna CEO Stefan Bancel, who predicted that the pandemic "will end within the next year", while he claimed that the citizens will either be vaccinated and have a good winter, or , most likely, they will get sick and may need hospitalization.
"I agree with the view that within a year we will be able to return to normal life," said the head of Pfizer. However, he clarified that "this does not mean that new mutations will cease to concern us".
