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 coronavirus is unlikely in the short term, Wu Zunyou, chief epidemiologist at the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, said on the social networking platform Weibo.
