Agata Kusz-Rynkun, the head of the infectious diseases ward of the Southern Hospital in Warsaw, announced on Saturday that 30 and 40-year-olds who are not vaccinated against COVID-19 are mainly living in the infectious ward of the facility. “Basically, these are patients who have not been vaccinated,” she said.

Ordinator on infections
– There are individual people who have been vaccinated, but they are immunocompromised people, therefore they may have become ill. These are generally patients who have not been vaccinated, she said.
As she said, “we must return to the principle: mask, distance and hand disinfection, because unfortunately the holiday period and the fact that the third wave expired relatively quickly, gave us some holiday, summer breath, made us see more and more people who completely disregard these restrictions. “
– Vaccinations are, of course, there is no doubt about it, but if we could return to compliance with the three basic rules, I think that more serious and social restrictions would not be necessary – she assessed.
In her opinion, in regions where poorer immunization rates have resulted in higher incidence of disease transmission is much greater. – Therefore, perhaps local restrictions will be needed, but I think that we are not at this stage yet to consider such a necessity – she added.
