Granted. Permanent immunity is not guaranteed.   For that matter, it may even slowly mutate its way through the population until the new version comes back to strike again (flu, cold, etc.) and permanent immunity doesn't help much.

This[^], along with interesting considerations, agrees with your point. Particularly towards the end.


On a sunny note, of sorts, the author expect a likely scenario is it joining four other Corona virus' that are typically with us along with the flu, sharing the season - but since kill or severely sickening the hosts doesn't spread the virus very well, it will likely evolve to an illness with generally minor symptoms. Alas, not in a time frame anywhere near 'Yesterday'
