School return could cause bigger second wave, experts say

LONDON, 04 August. - (ANA) - Scientists have warned that current testing and contact tracing are insufficient to prevent a second wave of Covid-19 when schools in the UK reopen.

Researchers at UCL and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine say transmission would increase as parents would no longer stay at home with their children.

They predict the second wave would hit in December and could be twice as large as the first wave.  - (ANA) -
