"By September we may have 2-3 more epidemics," warned Greek American doctor and NCI researcher George Pavlakis, who told SKAI channel that most respiratory viruses do not provide adequate immunity to stop the infection. This results in re-infection.
He cited the countless times that each of us has had the flu, colds or other coronaviruses. "If measles behaved like the coronavirus we would have a huge problem in our society."
He also stressed that Omicron 2 is a different virus, like any variant.
Regarding vaccines, Mr. Pavlakis said that we are not close to finding a vaccine with a longer duration, so those who have health problems should do a 4th dose and more in the future.
The 4th installment in 50 years and over will depend on how much we adhere to the measures, he said.
In closing, he appealed to the citizens: "Protect yourself because we will have an increase in cases and deaths."
