Demosthenes Sarigiannis, Professor of Environmental Engineering at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, expressed his concern about the mutations of the virus and the increased rate of transmission, speaking in Athens at 9.84 and at Eleonora Orfanidou Eleftheria Koumantou.
"We are at the beginning of the spread of this mutated virus in Greece, so we have the opportunity to stifle it at birth. If we do, we will not have a problem, but if we do not, then then this may lead to a significant increase in cases in the first fortnight of March. " stressed Mr. Sarigiannis.
He even predicted that "In such a case, the big problem will be located in the Intensive Care Units, which will be significantly pressured"
Goal repeated is 'To break the transmission chains of the mutant strain at their beginning. This will be done with more tests and with an enhanced network that will "read" the genome of the virus in patients, so that we know, whether it is the old or the mutated strain, that the positive ones will be quarantined and the tracking »
