Although two packages of strict measures for the fight against the epidemic were introduced in just a few days, of which the decision to transfer upper primary and all secondary school students to online classes, a member of the Crisis Staff, epidemiologist Dr. Predrag Kon, said last night that we were late.
Kon told RTS that the numbers still show that we have no "zero" situation anywhere.
He pointed out that the creation of collective immunity without vaccination would take several years, so much is expected from the vaccine.
"Miracle is expected from a vaccine, and miracles generally don't happen", Kon pointed out.
According to the latest data, there are 435.855 deaths from COVID-19 infection, and 4.134,874 people recovered from the infection.
The highest number of infected and dead people is in the USA - 2.162.228 cases of coronavirus have been confirmed in that country, and 117.858 people have died.
The second is Brazil, where 867.882 people were infected and 43.389 people died.
He adds that it will probably be like that by the beginning of July.
The virus, he says, is now weak and out of 66 newly infected, only one or two have pneumonia, while at the height of the epidemic, 20 or 30 had pneumonia per 100 infected. Asked whether gatherings would be banned, Nestorovic said he didn't think so, because there was no reason for that.
If the trend of coronavirus continues to increase and if we have difficulty stopping the new five outbreaks, then I will suggest that some of the measures be restored. This was stated by Prof. Todor Kantardzhiev, director of the Center for Infectious and Parasitic Diseases and a member of the staff for combating the infection.
