Everyone is wondering when, or if another wave of coronavirus is upon us, but what can we do to stop a second wave if it's on the horizon?

Here's the key to stopping the second coronavirus wave, says study 46 |

According to a recent study published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society A, from universities of Cambridge and Greenwich, lockdown measures aren't enough to curb the second wave of COVID-19. The recent study suggests that masks of any kind are the answer to stopping a second wave. According to Dr. Richard Stutt, part of a team that usually models the spread of crop diseases at Cambridge's Department of Plant Sciences, "Our analyses support the immediate and universal adoption of facemasks by the public".

Stutt continued, and said, "If widespread facemask use by the public is combined with physical distancing and some lockdown, it may offer an acceptable way of managing the pandemic and re-opening economic activity long before there is a working vaccine." On top of that, Dr. Renata Retkute, coauthor and Cambridge team member, said that there is very little to lose from every adopting facemask use, but there are significant gains to be had from the adoption.

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
