UK Medical News: Medical experts at the Academy of Medical Sciences (AMS) are warning that Britain must prepare now for a potential new wave of COVID-19 infections that could be worse than the first.


 
The report: Preparing for a challenging winter 2020/21 calls for ‘intense preparation’ throughout the rest of July and August to reduce the risk of the health service being overwhelmed by a second wave, as it already grapples with existing disruption caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus and a backlog of patients awaiting medical attention. https://acmedsci.ac.uk/file-download/51353957
 
These additional pressures are compounding already typical challenges normally faced by the health service during the winter season, such as flu outbreaks, a rise in other infectious diseases, and worsening of common conditions such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
 
In order to help prepare for this, the report stresses that urgent action is needed now to minimize transmission of coronavirus in the community, and reorganize health and social care staff and facilities to maintain COVID-19 and COVID-19-free zones.
