Dr Hans Kluge, Europe regional director for the WHO, said on Wednesday younger age groups may be causing COVID-19 to climb in different places in the world. It's going to be one large wave. "It's going to go up and down a bit...the best thing is to flatten it and turn it into just something that is lapping at your feet".
The WHO has avoided referring to any resurgence as "wave".
"What is affecting the transmission of this virus is mass gatherings, it is people coming together and people not social distancing, not talking the precautions to ensure they are not in close contact".

With countries like India hugely affected by COVID-19 in the periods of March to July, Which is like the peak summer season, it is evident that summer heat certainly can't stop coronavirus. She has also emphasized the need for vaccination against the common flu as the already present respiratory burden could put more pressure on the respiratory system during the flu season. Harris and other experts have recommended the general population to get vaccinated against influenza to reduce the risk of getting infected by the influenza virus.
