Paul Hudson is the CEO of Sanofi. The French pharmaceutical company has two Covid-19 vaccines under development — one with GlaxoSmithKline, the other with Translate Bio for an mRNA vaccine. It's also manufacturing vaccine doses for competitors Johnson & Johnson and Pfizer.

As we enter the one-year anniversary of initial lockdowns across the globe, it is clear the Covid-19 pandemic is still lingering on and here to stay.

So far, the virus has killed over 2.5 million people worldwide and infected millions more. While vaccines bring us hope, we are facing new challenges as different variants spread around the world that question the efficacy of currently approved vaccines. As the virus mutates, there's the realization that Covid-19 could move from pandemic to endemic, and this will become an ever-present disease that will stay with us for the foreseeable future. However, we now know how we can manage it.
