The COVID-19 pandemic may reach a peak next winter after receding this summer; and it is expected to "travel" back and forth from the Southern and Northern hemispheres for the next one or two years, a top Chinese expert on infectious diseases said.

The point was raised by Zhang Wenhong, director of the Department of Infectious Diseases from Shanghai's Huashan Hospital, at a video conference on Tuesday sharing with German medical experts on how to efficiently fight the novel coronavirus, the cause of the ongoing pandemic of the COVID-19.

During the conference, Zhang said that the pandemic may hit a low ebb when most infection cases will have been tamed this summer. But it is too early to predict whether the virus will come back next winter, Zhang said.

womenHe estimated the pandemic will diminish from April to June.

He also predicted that sporadic infections will be spotted after it recedes in summer, and then lead to another peak of the virus next spring. It is possible that the virus will travel back and forth from the Southern and Northern Hemispheres, considering seasonal changes.
