We can now take a break from COVID

We can now relax and as the World Health Organization said, the end of the pandemic is in sight. This is what the adviser on health issues of the Capital Municipality, Prof. Todor Kantarjiev, commented to Nova TV about the coronavirus. In his words, the COVID virus has become less dangerous and deadly.

“However, it should be borne in mind that every year we have problems with respiratory infections during the autumn-winter season. A well-mannered and educated person observes certain rules – ventilation in public places. If you are not sure about your immune system, it is not a bad idea to wear a mask. It is very important that we follow the rules, because other infections will appear,” he added.

Adapted vaccines against COVID-19 build immunity against the classic variant of the virus and against Omicron, the professor also explained.

“Anyone who has the previous vaccines can get this one. It is only for booster reimmunization. It ensures strained immunity in the coming months”, Kantarjiev pointed out. And recommended the vaccine for people with co-morbidities and with many contacts.

Against the flu, he explained that vaccines are already available in pharmacies. “From next week, the vaccination of the 65-year-olds will begin,” he specified. Prof. Kantarjiev explained that we can get an adapted vaccine against coronavirus, and in about a week or two, we can also get an anti-flu preparation.

The first symptoms of the flu and the coronavirus that may orient us are sore throats. “Then one can take lemon with soda. There is some difference in the clinical course of the two diseases. But the first rule is that whoever is sick should stay at home”, appeals the professor.
