The third wave of coronavirus will become possible if people are careless. Melita Vujnovic, representative of the World Health Organization (WHO) in Russia, warned about this on the air of the TV channel “Russia 1”.
She noted that the second wave now shows a decline around the world. However, since humanity has not yet developed a collective immunity, the risk of a third wave exists. “It depends on people’s behavior,” she summarized.
On Jan. 28, 100 million cases of coronavirus were reported worldwide. More than 2.1 million people died from complications from COVID-19 pneumonia.
Earlier, Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova said that restrictions on the coronavirus must be observed before population immunity is established.
On February 15, Sergei Sobyanin, mayor of the capital, admitted that the city will continue to lift restrictions if the epidemiological situation continues to improve. In the future, the authorities may lift the ban on festivals and mass events.
