Stronger impact of the coronavirus in September, it is possible that masks will be mandatory again
Doctor Branislav Tiodorovic, epidemiologist and member of the Crisis Staff has stated today that, if the number of people infected with the coronavirus continues to grow, some measures, including mandatory masks, will have to be reinstated, and the decision on how pupils will start school year will be made in seven days.
Tiodorovic stated with the „Blic“ daily newspaper that the return of mandatory mask wearing indoors in the fall is under consideration.
„The entire families return from vacation infected. Everyone who does not feel any discomfort has no movement restrictions and the recommended measures are not implemented anywhere. The situation is serious because every day we have from 4,000 to over 6,000 infected people,“ Tiodorovic said, adding that the increase in the number of deaths is particularly worrying.
If we look at the structure of those hospitalized, then we see people over 65 and over 75 to 80 years of age. Those unvaccinated represent a majority. There are also vaccinated, but they have serious associated diseases“, he said.
Tiodorovic pointed out that a new stronger impact of the corona is expected in September. He added that we will also monitor whether a new vaccine that is more adapted to the omicron strain will appear.
