US doctor says “The second wave of Coronavirus has begun in the US. The medical system will stress out if people aren’t careful”.
William Schaffner of the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine said, “the second wave has begun. Cannot imagine a second shutdown following the economic, social, and cultural impact of the first one’.
Other countries, however, have not shied away from reimposing measures. Last week, Beijing reportedly banned tourism and locked down 11 neighborhoods in response to infections related to a wholesale market.
The second wave of coronavirus has started in the U.S. — and people need to remain careful or risk stressing out the health-care system again, said William Schaffner, a professor at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine.
“We’re opening up across the country, but many, many people are not social distancing, many are not wearing their masks.”
Several states in America have reported recent spikes in Covid-19 cases as measures are eased throughout the country. The U.S. has the highest number of cases in the world. Nearly 2.1 million people have been infected by the disease and more than 115,000 people have died, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
