The increase in coronavirus infection in some countries is not associated with the second wave of the pandemic. This was announced on Tuesday, October 13, by the World Health Organization Regional Director for Emergencies Dorit Nitzan during the conference “Pandemic 2020: challenges, solutions, consequences”.
“Types and forms of coronavirus show that there is no second wave of pandemic,” she quoted as saying.
She noted that along with the countries where the number of coronavirus cases is currently on the rise, some countries are experiencing a decline in the incidence of disease. According to Nitzan, WHO monitors this data on a daily basis and studies the situation in the countries where the morbidity rate is decreasing.
Nitzan noted that many people underestimate the seriousness of coronavirus infection due to the fact that only 5% of those who got sick in the world carried the disease seriously.
“But these 5% suffer very badly. Their lives are in danger. It’s hard to say, but it’s very hard for them,” added the WHO representative.
