Second Wave of Coronavirus Next Winter Could Be Worse


Even as states move ahead with plans to reopen their economies, the director of the CDC warned that a second wave of the novel coronavirus will be far more deadly because it is likely to coincide with the start of flu season,” the Washington Post reports.

Said CDC director Robert Redfield: “There’s a possibility that the assault of the virus on our nation next winter will actually be even more difficult than the one we just went through. And when I’ve said this to others, they kind of put their head back, they don’t understand what I mean.”

Asked about the appropriateness of protests against stay-at-home orders and calls on states to be “liberated” from restrictions, Redfield said: “It’s not helpful.”
