“Currently, 75,000-80,000 children with active cases of COVID19 have been identified in schools,” said Nikos Tsanakis, professor of pulmonology, speaking on SKAI. The expert urges parents to conscientiously follow public health protocol and report true test results.
According to the professor, “we will see the real situation with covid in the coming days.” The expert said that, despite the small error that he allows, if this situation continues, we will have a de-escalation (a decrease in the number of cases of covid), from next week we will see 15,000-17,000 cases.
However, he stressed that Greece may be an exception to this epidemiological development, as the Delta remains in the “shadow” of Omicron. “15% of cases are infected with the Delta strain,” noted the eminent pulmonologist. He pointed out that there is a high possibility of “dominating” other mutations, and therefore he continues to recommend that people get vaccinated.
