'Very destructive' SECOND wave of Covid-19 may come as countries lift restrictions, WHO warns

Hans Kluge, the European director for the World Health Organization (WHO) on Wednesday reiterated the body’s message: even though the coronavirus pandemic has apparently been brought under control, its threat remains as persistent as it was when the infection first emerged in China last year.

"We still have neither a vaccine nor a cure for Covid-19," he said, during a news conference. Kluge was speaking in Russian to reach people in countries where many know the language, from Russia itself to Armenia and Israel.

"The second wave is not inevitable. But an increasing number of nations are lifting restrictions, and there is a definite threat of a repeat outbreak of the Covid-19 infection. If those outbreaks are not isolated, a second wave may come and it may be very destructive," Kluge cautioned.

The WHO has repeatedly been warning nations to maintain a slow and conservative pace in lifting national lockdowns, to prevent the disease from spinning out of control again.
