Professor Whitty's warning over second wave of coronavirus in winter

Professor Chris Whitty, the chief medical officer, has said it is important to learn lessons from what had happened in the outbreak as the Uk faces the risk of another wave of the virus in the winter.

He said outbreaks of the disease in autumn and winter could be more serious as the virus will have ‘advantages’.

And he said the measures that have worked to curb the virus so far this year, may not work next time.

At the No 10 briefing he warned there was a “reasonable chance” that the virus would have certain “advantages” if there was a second wave in the winter.

“It is something that transmits more easily indoors and therefore things that are working well in summer and autumn may cease to be working as well in winter,” he said.

“The nature of new epidemics is very often they come in waves circling around the world and if we get hit by another wave, at that point we need to understand better what is the optimal mix of things we could do.”
