The second wave of coronavirus in Russia may start in autumn. Vitaly Zverev, an immunologist, gave such a forecast to the Russian portal Ura.ru.

At the same time he expressed the opinion that there will be no serious limitations due to coronavirus, as people will get used to it. "Everyone will understand that the consequences of disease are not as severe. A lot of people will get sick asymptomatically," said the doctor.
