Second coronavirus wave in winter may be worse than the first, Professor Chris Whitty warns
Chief medical officer says ‘every country has now got an extremely difficult balancing act’ in deciding on best course of action
Prof Whitty said that, like all respiratory viruses, Covid-19 was likely to be transmitted more during winter
A second wave of coronavirus could be “more severe” than the first, especially if it arrives in winter, the country’s chief medical officer has warned.
Professor Chris Whitty said “every country has now got an extremely difficult balancing act” in deciding on the best course of action amid calls to ease lockdown measures.
In a lecture to Gresham College, Prof Whitty said: “We all need to be honest about the fact there are no easy solutions here.
“It is entirely plausible for a second wave to actually be more severe than the first if it is not mitigated.”
