The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has been interviewed and revealed that people should start to expect a second wave of coronavirus in the not so distant future.

CDC director, Dr. Robert Redfield has stated during an interview with ABC's Good Morning America that citizens should start to think of the coronavirus outbreak as a terrible case of the flu, and to expect a second wave it to come back seasonally. Dr. Robert Redfield says, "I think we have to assume this is like other respiratory viruses, and there will be a seasonality to it." Redfield states that it's still not definitive that contracting the virus means that everyone will develop immunity to COVID-19, the research is yet to be conclusive on that.

This is why Redfield is suggesting for everyone to expect a second wave of coronavirus sometime in the flu season next year. When asked about the second wave, Redfield says, "The CDC is science-based, data-driven, (so) until we see it, we don't know for certain. But it is critical that we plan that this virus is likely to follow a seasonality pattern similar to flu, and we're going to have another battle with it upfront and aggressively next winter."

Redfield is promoting that it's important to expect that the virus will return as a second wave so even it happens to do so we are more prepared for it, and can control the outbreak much more successfully than we have this time.
