Millions Could Die in Possible Second COVID-19 Wave: WHO

Millions of people could die if there is a second wave of the coronavirus pandemic infections, a World Health Organization (WHO) official warned Friday. The official added that the deadly outbreak has so far unfolded much like WHO had anticipated.

“The comparison is with the Spanish Flu, which behaved exactly like COVID-19: it went down in the summer and fiercely resumed in September and October, creating 50 million deaths during the second wave,” Dr Ranieri Guerra, WHO Assistant Director-General for Strategic Initiatives told Italy’s Rai TV.

Guerra’s remarks come as several countries in Europe – and across the globe – begin to relax national confinement measures, originally introduced to limit the spread of coronavirus.
