Countries Should Be Bracing For A Second And Third Surge Of Coronavirus

It’s been warned that countries need to plan for a second or third surge of coronavirus until a vaccine is developed, with Europe remaining pretty much in the grip of the pandemic despite a plateau or decline in new cases since most countries went into lockdown.

COVID 19 isn’t going away anytime soon, and scientists around the globe are rushing to produce a vaccine which would turn the tide against the virus, but it’s expected to be several months away at least, and countries need to plan for future outbreaks once the first peak has been reached.

The important issue is to be prepared, whether it’s for a second surge or another explosion of another likely contagious agent, and this will need the collaboration and understanding of everyone.

Parts of Europe are beginning to move towards a post-lockdown life, with schools now open in some countries and shops in others. Nevertheless, Britain remains under strict lockdown with no expiry date in sight, as the death toll proceeds to rise.

There are certain signs Europe is reaching its peak of the virus but it remains pretty much in the grip of the pandemic, with the continent still accounting for approximately half (46 per cent) of all cases globally, and almost two-thirds (63 per cent) of all deaths.

And even now we’re seeing evidence of a plateau or decline in new cases, its growth must be monitored extremely closely.

In Britain, pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca is making plans with Oxford University to distribute a vaccine if trials prove successful, and the university’s Jenner Institute began human trials last week, with some results anticipated by the middle of June.

It was also said that they want to make sure the rest of the world can make the vaccine at scale.

Dozens of vaccines are currently in progress but it will probably take 12 to 18 months to obtain one that works, but the public health policy will have to remain at the top of the agenda even after the crisis comes to a standstill.

And the one thing that’s apparent in different countries is the speed in which even the best health systems can be defeated and destroyed, so the most important lesson overall at this stage would be that health deserves to be at the peak of the political program.

Health is the driver of the economy and what we see now is that without health, there’s no economy. Without health, there’s no national security, and that once we get out of this pandemic, through combined efforts, this is a lesson that should never be forgotten.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
