A sharp increase in the number of new infections with the delta-type coronavirus in the UK and Israel indicates that the fourth wave of the epidemic may reach Poland as early as the second half of August, according to the forecasts of the Ministry of Health. Its severity, and at the same time, its consequences for the economy will be smaller as more people are vaccinated, Professor Krzysztof Tomasevic, Head of the Department and Clinic for Infectious Diseases at Lublin Medical University, said on Radio Lublin.

– When vaccinating, we also think of entrepreneurs who have had to close their businesses, hotels and restaurants – says Krzysztof Tomasiewicz. – I think that globally, if there are further increases, it will be possible to operate and serve the vaccinated people. We will definitely get to that. And there’s not going to be a debate here about whether it’s a human rights violation or it’s in line with some ideas, because here we have a lot at stake to decide to make people suffer losses because others don’t want it. On – adds.

Data from Great Britain confirm that among the 26,000 infected with delta type in the previous day, there are essentially unvaccinated people. A vaccinated person has a much lower risk of contracting the disease, and is less likely to need hospitalization if they become ill.
