The new coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) although still invisible is no longer unknown, it is not "terra incognita", as when it first appeared, emphasizes the professor of the Medical School, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Rector of EKPA, Thanos Dimopoulos, speaking to APE-MPE, on the occasion of the one year since the outbreak of the pandemic

According to him, it is one of the most important threats in the modern history of mankind, but -as he emphasizes- with the new treatment options, in combination with the approval of more and more effective and safe vaccines and the mass vaccination of the population we can be optimistic about tackling the pandemic.

Mr. Dimopoulos estimates that in the war against the virus the health systems and the scientific bodies of each country have essentially formulated the strategy of dealing with COVID-19 at national level, taking into account the peculiarities of their country, the material infrastructure, the reserves of the health system. and the ever-changing epidemiological curve.

Regarding our country, he points out that the timely taking of measures to prevent the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the expansion of the health system reserves and the effective vaccination strategy are particularly important elements of its health response to COVID-19.

"With the mass vaccination of the population and the achievement of a sufficient percentage of collective immunity in the community, it will be possible to curb the epidemiological curve and gradually return to normalcy. It is certain that the current health crisis offers important lessons both nationally and internationally about the need for the health system to be constantly prepared to deal with future similar situations. It is necessary to strengthen public health structures in the field of prevention and development of strategies for the early diagnosis and treatment of communicable diseases. A modern institutional framework of public health can ensure the continuous training of specialized staff, the creation of Laboratories and Decentralized Services, the optimal establishment of procedures for case tracking, better surveillance and implementation of restrictive measures "concludes Mr. Dimopoulos.
