Opponents of vaccinations against coronavirus are under a “psychological cap”, said candidate of medical sciences Tatyana Solomatina, deputy chairman of the State Duma committee on health protection.
In an interview with radio Sputnik, according to the publication News, the candidate of medical sciences expressed bewilderment how people can “calmly treat” the increase in diseases and deaths from the coronavirus:
“Doctors already lack the strength to shout about this situation, but some kind of psychological cap is put on the minds of our people. We cannot break it through in any way. For me, the ten thousand cases of coronavirus detected per day have become a psychological mark. It amazes me that people still treat this situation, to put it mildly, calmly. Even thirty thousand sick per day – I’m not sure that the situation will change. “
In an interview Sputnik she told how you can turn the tide. According to Solomatina, it will not be possible to change it with tough measures. In order for people to go en masse to get vaccinated, it is necessary to talk as much and in more detail as possible about the dangers of coronavirus:
“People of a close circle are already sick, and some still don’t get vaccinated. I don’t even know what to do. We cannot take tough measures. But how to get through? Probably, something needs to be done within the information space. Every corner has heard about COVID-19, and what it threatens. People should hear that the virus is very aggressive, organ damage in patients is very fast, and because of this, mortality is increasing. “
To date, says Solomatina, vaccination remains the only proven way to reduce the risk of death and severe course of coronavirus. But many Russians are in no hurry to get vaccinated.
Yesterday Yevgeny Timakov, an infectious disease doctor, linked the increase in deaths due to the consequences of COVID-19 with the carelessness of Russian citizens. On the same day, Dmitry Peskov, press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation, called the decision not to be vaccinated against the backdrop of a pandemic irresponsible.
