Even as some states are getting ready to re-open businesses, The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention has a tough warning.

The CDC director is warning that a second wave of the coronavirus is likely to be even more devastating that what we are dealing with now.

Speaking earlier this week, the CDC director says that a second wave of Covid- 19 could very likely coincide with flu season.

Director Robert Redfield spoke to the Washington Post and said that "the assault of the virus on our nation next winter will actually even more difficult than the one we just went through."

Having two simultaneous respiratory outbreaks would put unimaginable strains on our health care system.

Stay Home - Stay Safe, and mask up if you have to go out. The more we follow these rules, the sooner we can slow the spread of the coronavirus, flatten the curve and get on with our normal lives.
