Bulgaria: The Executive Director of Moderna Predicts an End to the Pandemic Next Year bbc.com

The CEO of the pharmaceutical company "Modern" Stefan Bansel believes that the pandemic of the new coronavirus can end up to a year since increased vaccine production guarantees global deliveries, Reuters reported.

"If we look at the increase in production capacity in the industry over the last six months, there will be enough doses available by the middle of next year for all people on the planet to be vaccinated. The necessary booster doses will also be available," he said in an interview with the Swiss newspaper Neue Zuricher Zeitung.

"People who are not vaccinated will be naturally immunized because the Delta variant is quite contagious. This way we will find ourselves in a situation similar to the flu. You can get vaccinated and have a good winter. Or you can't get vaccinated and you run the risk of getting sick and probably even ending up in hospital," he said.

Asked if this meant a return to normal life in the second half of next year, he replied: "As of today, within a year, I guess."
