Prepare for a possible second wave of coronavirus COVID-19

World media sources are talking about a second wave of coronavirus. Which means more shutdowns and regulations are coming. Based on these reports, you may need to prepare yourself and families for extended times of quarantine coming in about one to four months.

Reports call on governments and people to be better prepared in responding to a second wave of the coronavirus.

Dr Hans Kluge, the World Health Organisation’s top official in Europe, said it is now “time for preparation not celebration” as lockdown restrictions begin to ease.

The most reliable models in the USA are now predicting another 100,000 COVID-19-related deaths in the U.S. by Oct. 1, on top of the 116,140 we’d had as of Tuesday, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Tough measures are taking place in China to prevent the disease from spreading in the second wave. On June 11, Beijing had reported its first COVID-19 case in almost two months. Now, many Beijing communities are forced to stay at home while they await the results of their nucleic acid virus tests. No one is allowed in, or out.

Beijing has cancelled flights and shut down schools again over fears of a second wave of Covid-19 outbreak linked to another wholesale food market.
