Germany at Beginning of Second Wave of COVID-19 Infections, Virologist Warns

BERLIN (Sputnik) – Germany appears to be at the beginning of the second wave of COVID-19 infections, the head of the Institute of Microbiology and Virology at the Brandenburg Medical School, Professor Frank T. Hufert, told Sputnik on Tuesday.

“We are at the beginning of the second wave, I think in two or three weeks we will know exactly what is happening now”, Hufert said.

Although the spread of the disease has largely subsided from its initial peak in early April, daily new COVID-19 cases broke the 1,000 mark on Friday.

Hufert said that his estimation is based on probabilities derived from the amount of international travel that the country has seen since it began lifting restrictions.
