on the radio station Alpha Radio 98.9 and Sotiris Pisco Assistant Professor of Epidemiology, Gekas Majorkis, spoke about the new strain of the Corona virus, “Kraken”.
At the outset, Mr. Majorkinnis stated that at the moment the data is not enough to draw firm conclusions, saying “the only data we have is from the US. It was initially said that the spread would reach 40% by December and yesterday it was reduced to 28% according to the Center “Disease control. We don’t have enough evidence to say this difference will prevail. There is no pressure on the US health care system. It doesn’t appear that measures need to be taken.”
Return of masks to schools
With regard to returning the mask to schools, he stressed that at the present time, “do not expect anything like this.”
“The return of horizontal measures is the result of pressure on the health system. There is a recommendation to use the mask in the context of individual responsibility. It is not clear that measures have been imposed yet. We are far from that. There is no pressure on the health system and this is not expected.”
In fact, he said, we are currently experiencing an outbreak of influenza “We are currently experiencing an outbreak of influenza. According to my models, there will not be another peak after that.”
Regarding the possibility of transmission of the new mutation, Mr. Majorkinis indicated that there is still insufficient evidence, but vaccines still protect citizens.
“There are some estimates for the transmission of new mutations, the transmissibility may not be 20%, but it may be as high as 50-60%, but we don’t have enough data.”
“Vaccine protection in terms of serious illness and death does not appear to be affected.”
“In general, if someone hung relatively recently, there is a very small chance that they will get hung up again anytime soon, not out of the question. However, it is extremely unlikely.”
And finally, with regard to China, he said that it is “in a state of indignation, because it has stopped using the “zero Covid” method. He has not been exposed to the Corona virus and does not have high immunity.
