The second wave of coronavirus in Russia may begin in October this year. At the same time, according to the forecasts of the virologist, doctor of medical sciences, professor Anatoly Altstein, it will be more widespread, while there will be fewer victims.

As the virologist said in an interview “Komsomolskaya Pravde ”, the main reason for the next outbreak - the holiday season - is greatly exaggerated. The chances of getting infected are the same, both in the hometown and at the resort. There is also no exact data on the seasonality of the virus: expectations that the coronavirus will recede with the onset of heat did not materialize. However, in October-November, along with a cold snap, the incidence may increase.

According to Anatoly Altstein, the second wave will become more widespread, but less aggressive. The virus will be more adapted to the human body, which means that the lethality will be lower than the current one. Judging by the statistics of Israel, where the second wave of coronavirus has already begun, the mortality rate is half that.

Earlier, Aghasi Tavadyan, an expert on statistics and modeling at the Center for Economic Research, stated that the second wave of coronavirus in Russia, most likely will not. In his opinion, it is typical only for countries whose residents observed strict quarantine.
