FOCUS Online/Wochit fear of the W-curve: “the Second Corona-wave could young people especially hard hit”

The second wave begins?

Whether it was the beginning of a possible second wave, not could, you know, said RKI-chief Lothar Wieler, but it could. The health authorities should no longer be able to keep track of the cases, sees a virologist Kekulé also the danger of a second wave.

The talk of a “second wave” rejects Fätkenheuer, has significantly contributed to the development of the Covid-19-drug Remdesivir,. “The word wave sounds like something Fateful, which we can escape, maybe we can’t influence.” The no longer meet the current Situation.

“If you let things go, the situation is uncontrollable.”

Gerd Fätkenheuer

“The pandemic is not coming back, she’s there. We were, and are, in one and the same pandemic, we have sometimes better, sometimes worse in the handle. The risk is definitely there. And we need to be very careful not to run, at the latest, after the end of the summer, with falling temperatures and the shift of social life in closed premises in a Situation that is worse than in March and April,“ further warns Fätkenheuer. “If you things to run, will the situation spin out of control.”

This was the bitter lesson and at the same time, the urgent warning from the comparison with the United States. “We have achieved a lot, but we can squander what has been Achieved and our edge also. And then it will be extremely difficult to counteract. Also this can be seen especially well in the United States.“ The infection happen to keep a handle on is still possible, if all the safeguards are consistently adhered to.
