According to experts, immunity will be achieved in 50% of the country’s population in July, given that vaccination will continue at a stable pace.
According to Nikos Tsanakis, professor of pulmonology at the University of Crete, “herd immunity will be created by vaccination of adults, so vaccination should not be postponed” until later. “
Regarding the course of the pandemic, he noted that there is an encouraging picture, as there is an obvious decrease in the number of intubated patients by 18% and by about 50% of hospitalizations of patients with coronavirus.
“We have a relatively manageable situation. There is a 35% decrease in cases compared to April, and on Saturday, for the first time in a long time, less than 2,000 cases were recorded, ”said Professor Tsanakis.
Finally, he noted that the summer will be good if the vaccinations are continued continuously and steadily.
