Fourth wave of the pandemic. Wojciech Andrusiewicz: He is starting to accelerate
The spokesman of the Ministry of Health, Wojciech Andrusiewicz, said on Friday in an interview with TVN24 that “the fourth wave (of the COVID-19 epidemic – ed.) Is slowly starting to accelerate”. – We are seeing a 20% increase (in infections – ed.), But there was also a day this week when the increase was 50%. It is also a testimony that the epidemic can accelerate us – he said.
According to Andrusiewicz, the epidemic in Poland “may accelerate if we do not get vaccinated”. He explained that the transmission of the coronavirus “among unvaccinated people is very fast.”
– We predict, in line with all forecasts, that the fourth wave may peak in September, at the turn of September and October. Certainly, the coming weeks will not be slowing down the pandemic, but rather further increases – he said.
