The evolution of the novel coronavirus has surprised us and I believe that we need a complete year at least (from last April 2022) in order to be able to reach a safe conclusion, that these negative surprises with the mutations and the changes in the virus’ profile will have stopped, stated to Athens-Macedonian News Agency radio, assistant professor of Epidemiology and member of the scientists committee of the Health Ministry Ghikas Magiorkinis said. “So, in a year we should be able to know if we are at the stagnation-endemic stage where we will live together with the virus and it will not change dramatically its properties, regarding, at least, the pathogenicity”.

Professor Magiorkinis also said that if there isn’t a surge of the pandemic, the fourth dose of the vaccine may not be obligatory, only recommended.

On the course of the pandemic in Greece, he said that it is in recession with the number of patients on ventilators dropping below 200 after a long time. “The prediction is that this drop will continue in the next one or two months. In the last two years we observed a surge in October and I believe that this will happen and in mid or end of October 2022.
