Mass movements of people during the current Chinese New Year holiday season may spread the pandemic, increasing infections in some areas, but a second wave of the pandemic is unlikely in the short term, Wu Zunyu, chief epidemiologist at the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

However, experts argue that this number does not fully reflect reality because it does not include those who die at home and because many doctors have said they are discouraged from citing Covid as a cause of death.
