Coronavirus in Poland. When is the fourth wave?
We must prepare that the fourth wave of the COVID-19 pandemic will be in Poland in three, four, five weeks – Professor Andrzej Fal said on Saturday on TVN24, president of the Polish Society of Public Health. He stressed that the more people get vaccinated today, the faster this wave will be cut. – However, we will not be able to face this wave of vaccinations – he assessed.
As the professor said, “in other countries, despite the high incidence, the fourth wave is characterized by a relatively milder course”. – Fewer people go to the hospital as a percentage, say 5-7 percent, and not as it was 15 to 20 percent – he noted. He added that there is also a decrease in mortality.
He noted, however, that “in Europe we are one of the lowest vaccinated populations”. – Therefore, we cannot say that this virus will deal with our population as mildly as it does with the British population, where although we have an incidence of more than thirty thousand (cases – ed.) A day, it goes into a very small number of hospitalizations – Fal said.
– We can all see that Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary are now a kind of green, unpolluted island with SARS-CoV-2 virus on the map of Europe, but we all also know that this state of affairs will not last indefinitely. will appear in greater numbers, Fal said. He noted that many specialists creating mathematical models, as well as the Minister of Health, Adam Niedzielski, indicated that “unfortunately we have to prepare in three, four, five weeks that we will have this wave and an increase in morbidity”.
