“…Of the last 10 big respiratory disease outbreaks, five have had significant subsequent waves, and four came after a summer trough. … Several countries around the world are already seeing a resurgence of cases, some more severe than the first. But are they second waves, spikes, or simply a continuation of the first wave? And what do they tell us about the likelihood of a second wave hitting the U.K. this winter?…” (Gulland/Nuki, 7/9).
