An important warning for the population in the coming period from a severe outbreak of the Corona virus.
Robert Redfield, director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, announced that it is expected that there will be a second wave of "corona" in the United States during the coming winter.
He explained that it may be much stronger than the first wave, because it will likely start with the start of the flu season.
During an interview with the Washington Post, he said, "There is a possibility that a virus attack on our nation in the coming winter will be more difficult than what we went through."
He pointed out that his country will face the epidemic and influenza at the same time. He added that «this double confrontation will put the health care system under more pressure compared to the first outbreak, and after the current wave of corona outbreaks began to decline with the decline in hospitalization rates recently and other indicators, the authorities should now prepare for a possible return of the virus within months ».
Asked about a wave of protests over orders to stay in homes and calls to free states from such restrictions, as President Donald Trump called for, Redfield said: "It doesn't help."
