(ANSA) – LONDON, NOVEMBER 3 – The pandemic sparked by Covid is far from over in the world and much less so in the UK, and it is believed to be an illusion. This is the warning today given by Professor Jonathan Van Tam, Deputy Chief Medical Officer of England, to His Majesty’s subjects, who has returned – in direct line with BBC viewers – to stress the efficacy of vaccines in containing serious infections, hospitalizations or deaths; But he nevertheless spoke of a worrying number of cases on the island (33,865 yesterday, albeit in partial decline) while it was still “in the fall”. It sparked other possible “difficult months” during the winter.
Van Tam indicated that the Kingdom’s infection rate is currently higher than the average of many other European countries, and complained about the general position of the British public opinion, noting that many citizens are behaving wrongly “as if the epidemic has passed.” On the other hand, his “personal expectation” is that there are still “some difficult months” ahead of us and a “potentially problematic” Christmas period.
The senior academic and government advisor insisted that it would also depend on a whole gamut of people’s “personal behaviours”, urging listeners to maintain a margin of common sense and caution; But above all by encouraging people over 50 and vulnerable people not to hesitate to get the third “booster” dose of the Covid vaccine offered at this point and get vaccinated against the regular flu as well.
