A new containment in the event of a second wave would be more difficult than the first, provide for specialists.
“We would face a harsh reality in some States if we were all close,” said Dr. Jonathan Reiner, a professor at the George Washington University School of Medicine, in an interview with CNN.
These new closures could be even more damaging to the economy.
“Another round of closures could have even larger effects on companies that may not be creditworthy,” said Dr. Christopher Murray of the University of Washington.
Despite the déconfinements, the pandemic is far from over at south of the border. More than 115,000 Americans have died of the coronavirus, and hundreds continue to die every day.
“The COVID-19 does not take a summer vacation,” warned Dr. William Schaffner, infectious disease specialist and professor at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
“It was in fact new opportunities to spread”, he added.
A doctor does not believe in a 2 –e wave
For his part, Dr. Patrick Pelloux, president of the Association of emergency physicians of France, does not believe that a second wave can occur, unless a mutation of the virus.
“Models by researchers in mathematics and epidemiology in France have shown that there was no rise of second wave,” he explained in an interview with the broadcast 100% New on the waves of LCN.
“When you look at what is happening on the ground […], there was any more alert or patient potentially serious who arrive with symptoms of the COVID-19. If I have any advice to give, it is: quickly resume economic activity”, he explained.
He finds that with the measures barriers, such as distance, physical, gels, disinfectants, hand washing and wearing a mask, a corporation does not need to be confined.
“The social and medical consequences of the confinement, may be more serious than the risk of the virus,” he stressed.
He explains that many patients do not travel any more in the hospitals for treatment for fear of the coronavirus, a trend particularly worrisome.
“The theory of the second wave is not at all demonstrated. However, it may be that the coronavirus is a new disease appeared on the earth, and it will be necessary to monitor in case it muterait. What is reassuring is that some laboratories have begun to move forward on a potential vaccine”, he reassured.
