Second Wave: COVID-19



Although markets catching it’s breadth from the big rally from it’s March low as investors way a rocky road to economic recovery. However, we have hopeful expectations against the promise for more stimulus. Understanding the present scenario, the US virus cases top 2 million in numbers awaits the fear of a second wave among the regions due to a spike in the cases.

Looking at these spikes in concerning numbers is a part of the first wave of the coronavirus. Possibly the hike in cases is from the gatherings and sort of activities, people walking in the open casually and not taking proper safety measures.

The civil unrest protest is another factor for the increasing number of cases, deducing significant facts from the previous serological studies determines that a relatively flat portion of the population has immunization to COVID-19, meaning many of us are still likely to come in contact with the virus. Scientists and researchers are just waiting with a “when” not an “if” the second wave is coming.

As the restrictions loosen for the citizens the opportunity for the virus to spread and start affecting once more as observed in South Korea displayed to how fragile the recovery can be, when as when a person concerned with the COVID-19 visited several Seoul night clubs in early May which made about a 120 people diagnosed positive for the virus.

Just as the social distancing measures were relaxed gives us a highlight that the struggle to balance the need to reestablish the economy with the need to protect the public health by the governments.

It all comes down to our adaptability to the situation, as our behavior makes the difference—the social distancing, hygiene measures that we follow need to be strictly followed at all times.

Many researchers also believe the virus may be modified or maybe the same disease; however, it will hold the same symptoms and similarly impact people. Our healthcare still has a lot to understand about the coronavirus, and it’s developments over time.

Keeping in mind that the coronavirus isn’t the only virus that had hit us in the past and the foreseeable future, we cannot be sure that this would be the last pandemic. So to be safe, we have to modify and adapt to the formidable circumstances. The way we interact with people who travel on trains or airplanes and more focus on hygiene measures will have to be changed.

The stricter the measures, the better and faster would be the recovery from the coronavirus pandemic as once the country’s implementation of these measures will determine the flow of the virus. We need to follow aggressive social distancing measures not only to reduce the mortality rates. Our advances in technology, global supply chains, and communication rules may ease the economic fallout, but we cannot compare the life of a human as second to economic fallout. Well, there are no easy answers to how lives and livelihood can together be safe. A healthy economy doesn’t happen without a healthy population only makes us hopeful positively of the future and more stringent to follow the safety measures.
