The EU member states should prepare for the possible start of the second wave of new coronavirus spread. The representative of the European Commission (EC) reported this on Monday.
“According to the results of the latest risk assessment, member countries should prepare for the second wave,” he said and stressed that European countries should take all necessary measures to be ready for such a scenario.
According to the EC representative, the European center for disease prevention and control regularly assesses the situation with the coronavirus pandemic. “New waves may appear even if the current indicators are well controlled,” he added.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, more than 4 million people have been infected with the coronavirus in the world, and about 280 thousand have died.
