On the afternoon of September 20, Dr. Zhang Wenhong, director of the Department of Infectious Diseases at Huashan Hospital affiliated to Fudan University, walked into Shanghai Jiao Tong University. In China, people have been asking whether there will be a second wave this winter, to which Zhang Wenhong explained: a second wave is inevitable. Novel Coronavirus has very strong viral transmission but not high fatality rate. According to Zhang, it is this very unique phenomenon that causes the virus to continue to spread around the world. Zhang predicted that, in principle, the epidemic will continue for a long time.
“There has been a second wave in the UK; France is half a month into its second wave; Spain’s second wave has also been more than half a month. A second wave is inevitable. Planning for a year should be the minimum limit for the world’s expectations. Under such circumstances, China will still face import risks, but in the past two days, national inspection teams have been dispatched to each province to inspect the infectious disease system, so as to prevent imported cases from becoming small outbreaks of fire and finally becoming exponential increases.”
