THE FLU hasn't gone away, the most vulnerable are vaccinated every year and the coronavirus will always be with us as well.

I am not a doctor but it is obvious these horrible little bits of genetic material for some reason want to enter our body's and cause all sorts of misery.

But not all viruses are bad, scientists say that viruses are vital to human survival because they have beneficial effects on many organisms that create eco systems and aid plant and organic life.

It is just a tiny proportion that that attack humans to give us contagious diseases etc.

Humans have overcome many trials and tribulations in our existence and if a jab once a year protects us from Covid then, just like the flu, let's protect ourselves against it by developing ever more effective vaccines against it.
