He noted, however, that it is not expected that a significant part of the population has had coronavirus.

"What further complicates the situation is that we don't know for how long that immunity may last and whether someone who has already had the coronavirus can be infected again and infect others," Veryga said.

"Researchers and clinicians currently have more questions than answers," he added.
