There's being some speculations that the world may be going in for a second wave, as presently there's no country in lockdown despite daily huge increase of figures, UK is already making arrangements as to re-open schools among others, while many local businesses have re-opened.
A second wave is a situation whereby following after the first surge in case and fatality, and the world or a country are in a lockdown suddenly relax the lockdown due to low reported cases or other factors, but after the relaxation there's a huge surge in cases and fatalities surpassing the previous one. The country is then forced to go back in lockdown (safety precautions) in other to stop the massive spread again. Yes we have first wave, the first one which we have all experienced, there's a second wave and in rare cases a third wave. India has announced plans to go back to lockdown (second wave) because of huge increase in cases.
