US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — According to the head of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a second outbreak of coronavirus infection can be much more serious than the first. A new wave is expected either at the end of this year, or next.
The peak of coronavirus infection is most likely to coincide with the peak incidence of influenza, which is a seasonal disease. As a result, the healthcare system will be in great strain.
The first outbreak of COVID-19 has already killed 42 thousand Americans. Officials should now think about how they will restrain the second wave of the disease. This will help prepare for the worst case scenario.
The authorities of some countries are thinking about easing quarantine measures. In this regard, the question of the importance of washing hands and maintaining distance will become more acute.
Recall that earlier the second outbreak was predicted by experts to be less large-scale, they expected it to fall this year. With each new study, previous findings become irrelevant.
