Russian infectious disease specialist Yevgeny Timakov warns that the easiest way to get infected with coronavirus is in the fall.
In an interview with radio Sputnik, the head physician of the Leader-Medicine medical center, an infectious disease specialist and a vaccinologist, noted that the level of infection is increasing due to the activity of other respiratory infections and influenza. He says:
“Now there are autumn viral infections, in addition to coronavirus, and patients have several infectious processes in a row or jointly. If we are talking about when it is best to meet with a serious dose of COVID-19, then when there is already immunity. through vaccination or disease. “
Seasonal situation, according to the words of the expert RIA Newsis especially dangerous for those who have not yet been vaccinated. A fairly large number of people have already encountered the coronavirus. However, there is now an increase in the incidence, and there is a risk of getting too much of the virus:
“The first encounter with COVID-19, most likely, has already occurred in most people. The question is in the viral load that a person received. It is necessary to reduce the amount of the virus that enters our body.”
Timakov draws attention to the fact that vaccination against covid will not only protect against increased viral load in contact with infected SARS-CoV-2. It will reduce the threat of infection by several types of viruses simultaneously, excluding the most dangerous pathogen from the possible list.
