A new study warns against lifting lockdown before COVID-19 vaccine arrives
The coronavirus pandemic has compelled many countries to impose strict lockdowns, including India. A study has now warned that lockdowns should only be lifted once a coronavirus vaccine is found. The study conducted by researchers based in Hong Kong was published in The Lancet medical journal Wednesday. A key finding of the study is that relaxing lockdown measures could present the risk of a second wave of COVID-19 transmission.
