Virologist Mikhail Shchelkanov believes that the second wave of coronavirus will come to Russia in two weeks. He predicted the COVID-19 pandemic five years ago.

According to the news agency URA.RU, first the second wave of coronavirus will begin in Europe, and then in Russia. According to WHO, a new surge in incidence in the EU has already begun: an increase in the number of reported cases is already observed in 30 countries.

According to Shchelkanov's forecast, the majority of cases will be in large transport centers in the European part of the country and in Vladivostok. In the capital of Primorye, this state of affairs will be due to the fact that through it, Chinese citizens will begin to return home from Europe.

Closing the borders could have prevented the second wave, says the virologist. At the same time, now in Europe the virus is already different from the one that spread in China. However, strong changes, according to the scientist, should not be expected. At the same time, he notes that in the next year or two, the coronavirus will not become harmless to humans. Such changes can be expected only in 10-20 years.
