Second Coronavirus Wave Possible in Fall, CDC Director Warns

The head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warns the U.S. could face a resurgence of the coronavirus in the fall and winter months and early in 2021.

CDC Director Robert Redfield said the possibility of a second wave exists because of the rapid spread of the virus in the southern hemisphere that could make its way north to the U.S.

“We’ve seen evidence that the concerns it would go south in the Southern hemisphere like flu [are coming true] and you’re seeing what’s happening in Brazil now,” Redfield said, Financial Times reported Thursday. “And then when the southern hemisphere is over, I suspect it will re-ground itself in the north.”

As of Thursday morning, the United States has more than 1.5 million reported cases of coronavirus, with nearly 94,000 deaths, according to a Johns Hopkins University tracker.
