French top scientific body sees second wave of COVID-19…

PARIS, Aug 4 – France’s top scientific body said a second wave of the coronavirus was “highly likely” this autumn or winter as the country grapples with a marked increase of new cases of the disease over the past two weeks.

“France has the situation under control but it is precarious with a surge of virus circulation this summer. The short term future of the pandemic mainly lies in the hands of the population,” the scientific committee on the disease said in a statement published by the Health Ministry’s website.

“It is highly likely that we will experience a second epidemic wave this autumn or winter.” (Reporting by Henri-Pierre Andre; Writing by Benoit Van Overstraeten; Editing by Alison Williams)
