Dr. Robert Redfield, the director of the CDC, says a possible resurgence of the coronavirus could result in an even worse peak at the end of the year.
“There’s a possibility that the assault of the virus on our nation next winter will actually be even more difficult than the one we just went through,” Dr. Redfield told the Washington Post. “And when I’ve said this to others, they kind of put their head back, they don’t understand what I mean.”
With the first wave of coronavirus cases peaking in April, the virus hit after flu cases began to die down. This allowed many hospitals to remain below capacity to handle the influx of coronavirus patients. The same luxury might not be true if the next wave of the virus coincides with the spread of the flu.
