Experts disagree on second wave of COVID-19 this fall

Andrew Noymer, an epidemiologist at the Program in Public Health, University of California, Irvine, said the second wave will flow across the country. “I firmly believe we will see distinct second waves, including places that are done with the first waves. New York, I’m looking at you,” he told the Post. “I expect fall waves starting in mid-October and getting worse as fall heads into winter and reaching a crescendo certainly after the election. Some places will peak around Thanksgiving, some places will peak around Christmas, some places not until January and February.”
