“All this means that another wave of epidemics has started in Israel and the United Kingdom,” explained Gábor Vattay, a professor at the Institute of Physics of Eötvös Loránd University, at the Medical Conference organized by the online business magazine Növekedés.hu. The epidemic modeling specialist said the number of infections in the UK is doubling every 15 days. The virus is spreading at twice the rate as its previous variations and experts predict a double mortality rate.
Against new epidemics, 100 percent of the population would be vaccinated with a 99 percent effective vaccine. If the vaccine is not effective enough, a phenomenon similar to that seen with antibiotic resistance occurs. If the virus is left with room to multiply, there will be an opportunity for mutations to occur, the researcher explained.
And increasingly aggressive versions will also have time to “learn to dodge” vaccinations. That is, low-dose vaccines “nurture” newer mutations.
The New York Times pointed out that people who received the Chinese vaccine could also get in trouble because in Bahrain, Chile, Mongolia and the Seychelles, where the vast majority of this drug was used, many people became infected despite high vaccinations. . True, the course of the disease is less severe than vaccinated ones.
A particularly serious problem in Hungary is that some of those vaccinated with the Chinese vaccine, especially those over 60 years of age, are presumably not protected. About 500,000 doses of Sinopharm vaccine have been used mainly in the elderly. According to Ferenc Falus, a former chief medical officer
The proportion of those in whom Sinopharm did not elicit an immune response could reach 20 to 30 percent.
Nevertheless, the National Center for Public Health (NNK) in its statement today banned doctors from giving a third vaccine.
According to professor of virology Ernő Duda, not only those who are uncertain about the effectiveness of Sinopharm should be offered a third vaccination, but in their case another vaccination cycle would be needed. The professor added that in order to prevent the fourth wave from exploding, as many of the teenagers and young adults who spread the virus as possible should be vaccinated by the fall. It could help in mitigation that at the end of the summer, when there will hopefully be few infected, all contacts should be researched and isolated.
