NATO defense ministers will discuss preparations for a possible new wave of coronavirus pandemic. This was announced on Tuesday, June 16, at an online briefing by Alliance Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.
He noted that the relevant videoconference should be held on June 17-18.
Last week, virologist Andrea Chrisanti suggested that a second wave of coronavirus pandemics could occur in winter.
At the same time, Italian virologist Massimo Clementi said that the results of recent scientific studies suggest that the second wave of coronavirus may not be.
In particular, scientists at Cambridge and Greenwich found that wearing protective masks everywhere could prevent a second wave of coronavirus pandemics.
According to Worldometer as of June 16, the number of cases of COVID-19 in the world reached 8.13 million, 439.5 thousand people died and 4.24 million recovered.
