WHO warns about a second wave of the coronavirus pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected humankind severely, causing a lot of havoc in everyone’s lives. While the disease is slowing its phase in many countries with a reduction in numbers and mortality, scientists say its not the end. The warning comes in after WHO reported that there may be a second wave in countries where the disease is declining. The countries can face an immediate second peak if they let up too soon the control measures against the disease, the Reuters reports. While the majority of the world is in the first wave, the numbers have declined in many countries. The numbers are beginning to surge in South American countries, said the emergency chief of the WHO.

We should see that when we speak of the second wave, it might be the repetition of itself in the coming months. We should see that the second wave can come on us at any time and can be even worse than the first one. But we need to be aware that it can come at us anytime he further added with countries planning to take of the measures to combat off the disease, to improve their economies. We should see that it affected their economies badly.

The history

We should also focus here on the previous pandemic that occurred over a century ago. Although the Spanish flu occurred in the last century, we have learned a lot of lessons from it. We should see that this pandemic had affected the people in the speculated wave pattern. The disease had three waves, and the second wave causing the havoc with more than deaths than the other two waves. We should see even such similar approaches like isolation, quarantine, infection were also followed during the last century.

And when the economies tried to open, they were scattered as more workers got the disease forcing to close their economies. Looking back, we see that this can teach us lessons from the past and help us shape the better days to come in the future. Causing around 50 million deaths in the previous century, we should see that our previous generations did not have the scientific advancements that we have now. Therefore, we can hope we can put a better fight with the pandemic in the days to come.
