Gikas Majorkinis, Assistant Professor of Epidemiology and member of the Committee of Experts of the Ministry of Health, appeared reassuring for the "Delta +" executive.
"Delta + does not seem to have a particular profile to be classified as a concern executive or a member under surveillance. "We do not see any significant increase in what people call contagion - but it is essentially penetration - in relation to strain D," said the assistant professor of Epidemiology and member of the Committee of Experts of the Ministry of Health, speaking in the First Program.
Vaccines for "Delta +" are effective
"Strain A has lost its significance with Delta, it is not considered a strain of concern since the beginning of September, when strain Delta dominated universally," he said, noting that scientists from laboratory models show that avoids vaccines, which are sufficient.
Finally, referring to the third dose of the vaccine, he stressed that it is extremely important for people in high-risk groups acting as a booster. "The third dose seems to increase the effectiveness of vaccination in mutant strains. "An umbrella is developing that is bigger, so even if a new mutation occurs, we will have greater efficiency", he underlined.
