The measures we implemented in a timely manner also had an impact on the protection of our population, said pulmonologist Dr. Alexander Simidchiev on bTV.
He described the COVID-19 infection as a fire. “When there are many infected – the fire burns faster and vice versa.”
“Currently, all the tests that have been done show that only 4% have overcome the virus. I have no idea that there will be a second peak of the disease.
Maybe it will be the fifth variant of colds, because our bodies are already immune.
We already know the frequency of the virus and we see the characteristics of the epidemiological process, “he added.
“In Eastern Europe, things were different and milder than in Western Europe. There were coincidences that coincided with the imposition of measures, such as the flu vacation we were on. And without a vaccine, we are doing very well with the epidemic,” he added. the pulmonologist.
In a future vaccine, risk groups will be vaccinated.
“There’s one thing the virus can’t change, the way it clings to the cell. So if a vaccine is created to protect these areas it will help.
Although, it is without vaccine we do very well. If there is a vaccine, it will be given to people at risk, “explained Dr. Alexander Simidchiev.
“Mask and hand hygiene can protect us on a plane, it’s been said from the beginning,” he explained.
“If we follow these basic measures, we will have a very calm sea. COVID-19 has made it possible for people to go back 50-60 years to a time when infectious diseases were a scourge and higher hygiene measures were observed,” he said. Mr. Simidchiev.
“Respiratory viruses are transmitted in the same way – they make us cough to spread them,” he said.
“Traveling by plane is a very risky activity because the same air circulates, which cannot be purified through filters.
A good way to determine the risk is not to vaccinate the whole population, but those with risky behavior.
It is better to vaccinate the people who will travel, instead of keeping them in quarantine for 14 days “, the pulmonologist is categorical.
