What will happen after the holidays? Dr Kon for TV Prva: This is a winning moment
Epidemiologist Predrag Kon, being hosted on TV Prva, said that the decline in numbers is good news, but that they expect that the decline will slow down a bit.
He said that he did not think that the holidays would affect the further course of the epidemic. Kon said that he was satisfied with the vaccination in Serbia, and especially in Belgrade, because over 43 percent of the adult population was vaccinated in the Serbian capital.
"I have to say that we are right now witnessing a moment that is literally a winning moment, that is the moment when the activity of the virus falls, even in cities, and that is favorable for vaccination, especially for vaccinating younger people, who represent the 'driving force' of transmission", Dr Kon said on Prva TV.
