Pandemic is 'one big wave,' not seasonal

WHO says the current pandemic is one big wave and not seasonal

A vaccination for COVID-19 has yet to be discovered and approved.

In many regions around the world, there has been a surge in cases over the past three months, and in other areas where lockdowns were enforced earlier and then relaxed case numbers are rising again in a second wave.

In Caribbean, Central American, South American, tropical African, Southern Asia and South East Asia countries, the World Health Organization bulletin reported that there have been only sporadic or no cases detected. One of the officials at World Health Organization said that this had been called the "second wave" of infections. A few believed the virus would not spread rapidly in the hot summer season.

"We are in the first wave".

Harris added that the intensity would continue to fluctuate, "it's going to go up and down a bit", while adding that limiting transmission is the only best shot at overcoming the pandemic. She was speaking at a virtual briefing. "Recently Harris said that the coronavirus is not like any common influenza, which will reduce as the weather changes". The experts warn that this pandemic can remain unabated in summer in the northern hemisphere, and there is thus no scope for complacency.

Soriano said her mother would have been "super happy" to hear of the great outcome but would also have reminded her to have faith. Soriano's teddy bear, pictured before the theft, has an audio recording her mother made before she died of cancer in June 2019.

Harris continued, "Summer is a problem". She also warned people not to gather in bulk.

"What is affecting the transmission is mass gatherings, it's people coming together, and people not social distancing, not taking the precautions to ensure they are not in close contact", she said.

"It seems likely that the virus spreads in this group first but with few symptoms and little illness". The flu does come in waves, since it's a seasonal infectious disorder. Some people might call these waves, but if they do, we are looking at dozens of waves.

With countries like India hugely affected by COVID-19 in the periods of March to July, Which is like the peak summer season, it is evident that summer heat certainly can't stop coronavirus.

However, she expressed concern about COVID-19 cases coinciding with normal seasonal influenza cases during the southern hemisphere's winter, and said the Geneva-based body was monitoring this closely. She has also emphasized the need for vaccination against the common flu as the already present respiratory burden could put more pressure on the respiratory system during the flu season.
