Green Recovery Preventing the Final Wave
Concerns are emerging that the second wave of COVID-19 pandemic may be about to sweep the world as economies continue to reopen after lockdowns. There are also concerns about the final wave – climate crisis. We have seen the impacts of COVID-19 in governments, businesses, and people. With limited health care capacity, taking early action, such as staying at home, washing hands and social distancing, could reduce the overall infections to keep cases at a manageable number for hospital to handle. From a short clip of the Canadian government, we understand graphically the importance of these measures in flattening the curve, where the curve represents the number of people getting sick over time. When a lot of people get sick over a short period of time, the curve rises faster, and it is more likely to surpass the level of which the health care system will be overwhelmed.
