At the moment, many countries have begun to talk about the need to take tough measures to combat COVID-19 again. Experts told whether the world is threatened with a new total quarantine this fall.
Even during the spring world epidemiological exacerbation, which eventually turned into a pandemic, many made predictions for the future. Scientists had no doubt that the disease could be stopped, but the second wave, with a high probability, could not be avoided. Now more and more people are infected with the coronavirus. In India, there are 100,000 more new patients every day. In Russia, significant growth has not yet been observed, but total quarantine has already been introduced in Israel. Only religious objects are not closed. In many other countries, the number of cases has also begun to rise. In this regard, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres announced that the situation was getting out of control.
The experts decided to bring some clarity to what is happening and told how the fight against the spread of the epidemic will be carried out. In their opinion, the scenario will be similar to the one that was in the spring. However, now the world will no longer be vulnerable to an unknown disease. Over the past six months, scientists have made great strides in studying the nature of the virus, and in some countries are actively working on vaccines. In the Russian Federation, this drug is already ready and vaccination will begin soon.
In addition, the researchers found that the most affordable means of fighting infection – medical masks, gloves and sanitizing surfaces – are also the most effective way to resist the virus. Recently it became known about the benefits of glasses. Only about 6% of people were infected with COVID-19, while the accessory is worn by a third of the entire population of the planet.
