The second wave of the Coronavirus is going to be bigger than the first one. Tha’s why we need to be prepared for it and know how to react.
A second wave means that the virus will be back again, and that’s probably this autumn.
Currently, the first wave of novel coronavirus cases in the United States seems to be “breaking” after its “peak” around late March when upwards of 20,000 new cases of COVID-19 and approximately 2,000 deaths from the virus were announced every day, says Jay Varkey, M.D., an infectious disease specialist and director of the Antimicrobial Management Program at Emory University Hospital.
it is very certain that there will be a second wave or peak of the coronavirus and the time should be around October this year.
What is important is that if we relax social distancing measures prematurely, a second wave could possibly come even sooner.
How to prepare for a second wave of coronavirus
You need to shift your perspective
If we look forward to “getting back to normal” as all the areas will reopens, understand that this is our “new normal” for the foreseeable future—and that could mean periods of social distancing as needed, per the World Health Organization.
You need to get your flu shot
Since the second wave might hit this fall or winter, getting your yearly flu vaccine is a must.
You need to find a new way to say “Hi”
It might sound silly, but we need to figure out a new way to greet other people without touching your friends and relatives.
You need to keep doing what you’re probably already doing
You probably mastered washing your hands properly, not touching your face, putting on a face mask before you go out, following social distancing guidelines, and self-isolating if you have symptoms of COVID-19
