Sanchez: Time to consider declaring COVID endemic

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez stated on Monday he will propose to the leaders of the countries comprising the European Union to reassess the situation concerning COVID-19 and declare the disease an endemic one, similar to flu.

"I believe that we have the conditions for, with precaution, slowly, opening the debate at the technical level and at the level of health professionals, but also at the European level, to start evaluating the evolution of this disease with different parameters than we have until now," he told on Cadena SER's radio show Hoy por hoy.

Sanchez added that the Spanish government is already working on new guidelines for treating the disease, which include not recording every new infection and mandatory testing of every person with symptoms.
