COVID-19: Second Wave

COVID-19: Second Wave

For more than two months Canadians have been cooped up and physically distancing to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. Restrictions are gradually lifting as the infection rate is decreasing nationally.

But this means we are far from the end of the road. If there is one thing health experts agree on when it comes to the pandemic, it’s a second wave. Traditionally, these virus outbreaks can come in waves. If you think about the Spanish flu 100 years ago, there were three waves which claimed up to 70 million lives. The weather is better, cabin fever is at an all time high, and some emergency measures have been dialled back.

Will this combination lead to a second wave, or will it be something else? Tell us what you think at Unpublished.Vote today!
