The World Health Organization’s special envoy for Coronavirus, David Nabarro, expected a third wave of the pandemic in Europe in early 2021, if governments repeat what he said had failed to do what was necessary to prevent the second wave.
“European governments did not work to establish the necessary infrastructure during the summer months after controlling the first wave,” Nabarro said in an interview with Swiss newspapers.
“Now we are facing the second wave. If European governments do not equip the necessary infrastructure, we will have a third wave early next year,” added Nabarro, a British national who failed to win the post of Director-General of the World Health Organization.
Europe has witnessed a brief decrease in infection rates, which have increased again now. On Saturday, Germany and France recorded an increase of 33,000 injuries, and Switzerland and Austria witnessed thousands of cases daily.
