Coronavirus: Is a Second-Wave Coming?

The threat of an epidemic is still present, so epidemiological preparedness and basic protection measures are still needed, the website said. Wearing a face mask is still compulsory in shops and on public transport. As the number of infections is on the rise in neighbouring countries, the government has decided to tighten border regulations, the portal said.
