U. researchers outline five-year transmission landscape of COVID-19

COVID-19’s five-year transmission landscape can range from “sustained epidemics” to “near-elimination” depending on the strength of immunity, vaccination rate and effectiveness, and social distancing protocol, University researchers found. The model presented in the study represents the range of pandemic outcomes on a sliding scale.
