Coronavirus: Expert’s chilling prediction ‘second wave’ of COVID-19 ‘expected’ from China | World | News

Professor Ben Cowling predicted that China will see another increase in coronavirus cases “in a month or two” during an interview with Sky News’ Adam Boulton. Professor Cowling also argued that using lockdown as a measure to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic will bring several issues. He stated that the coronavirus infection “numbers will keep coming back” when the period of lockdown ends and as a result, multiple lockdown periods will need to be imposed.  

Mr Boulton said: “Looking at the China experience they are saying you can lock this down but when you take the controls off you will get a second wave.

“Are there any signs yet of a second wave of infection?”

Professor Cowling replied: “There are no signs yet but that is what we expect to happen.

“It is like resetting the clock every time.

“In Wuhan and other parts of China they have reset the clock to early December.

“So we will see in a month or two that the case numbers will gradually come up and then maybe they need to do another lockdown.

“I think the issues with lockdowns are that you need to keep doing it again because the numbers keep coming back up.”

At the time of writing Britain has the 10th highest amount of COVID-19 cases in the world.
