A new wave of coronavirus infections is possible this autumn, Higher Health Institute (ISS) President Silvio Brusaferro said in Italy.

He said this was because "the disease, spread by droplets, can spread more greatly and may get confused with the other symptomatologies of a respiratory type".

Brusaferro said it was "an objective fact" that "respiratory infections spread in the autumn".

A similar warning came from the World Health Organization's special envoy David Nabarro, who said that the coronavirus "has not disappeared". Nabarrao said that, with the easing of lockdowns, it is necessary to prepare for the arrival of "new waves that will spread quickly".
