The second wave COVID-19 awaits Russia in two weeks after “rebirth coronavirus”, recorded by the world health organization (who) in Europe. Possible second wave of the coronavirus in an interview Ura.ru called Virology, Mikhail shchelkanov, five years ago predicted the outbreak COVID-19.
“In two weeks we will feel for yourself the surge, which is observed in European countries,” said shchelkanov. He added that the outbreak may occur in the European part of Russia, namely in such cities as Moscow, St. Petersburg and Nizhny Novgorod. In addition, the increase in the number of new infections can wait in Vladivostok, because it is through this city, the citizens of China are returning home.
To help avoid a second wave of coronavirus, according to shchelkanova, could complete closure of the borders, but in reality it’s impossible for Russians who live abroad.
“To rely on the fact that the virus will fundamentally change its biological properties and more safe for humans, in the near future one or two years is not necessary. However, in the medium term of ten to twenty years, the coronavirus still adapts to the human body”, — concluded the virologist.
Earlier, the Director of the regional office of the world health organization (who) in Europe Hans Kluge said that the coronavirus was revived in Europe because of the weakening of constraints. He said that in 30 European countries in the last two weeks again there is an outbreak of coronavirus infection. Kluge added that in 11 countries the number of new cases has increased so much that the healthcare system there could collapse.
