Dr. Ali Nouri, the president of the Federation of American Scientists, said Tuesday, because of the coronavirus outbreak, "normal life won't resume until 2021," the U.K.'s Daily Mail reports.

"We will certainly have to continue these stay-at-home orders for I suspect at least through the end of May, or perhaps some time in June," said Nouri, who is an expert in the fields of virology, cell biology, and developmental biology.

"There's not going to be a time when there is a magic date and then everybody goes back to their lives as normal," he added. "That's not going to happen for a long time.

"Once June comes around, once July comes around, it's not going to be the kind of situation where people are going to be going to crowded restaurants and movie theaters. Things are going to be different, I suspect, until we have the vaccine."

Nouri noted, even though China, where the virus originated, has successfully lowered the number of new cases, the government is still advising citizens to remain indoors if possible.

"That really tells you that this virus has the potential to really flare up again, even in places that have flattened the curve," Nouri said.

"If we do really do a good job of flattening that curve and reducing the number of transmissions from person to person, we still have to be very careful while we lift those restrictions," he continued.

"What's really different about this novel coronavirus is that it's this combination of both being very contagious and then also at the same time being about 10 times more lethal than the flu."
