The doctor Julian Ezquerra, general secretary of the Association of Physicians and Higher Graduates (AMYTS), has warned in the Sixth Night that “in the coming weeks we will have the new variant [ómicron] being the absolute majority in Spain, as it is already in other places ”.

When asked by the presenter of the format, Jose Yélamo, on what we can expect the rest of the winter in the face of the coronavirus situation and if he is optimistic, the doctor has been very clear. This, in addition, has pointed out that as a consequence of the fact that it is going to be the majority, “it is going to infect a lot, a lot of people.”

“What this new variant has shown,” according to the doctor, “is that the infection is much easier and that a single patient, a single infected, has the ability to spread the infection in three, and not in one as there was before. ”.

But at the same time, the doctor considers that “measures such as the covid passport, the new incentive for vaccination, is making people go to get mass vaccinated with the third dose, and that those who were not vaccinated start the schedule of the vaccination”.

Therefore, “both things come together.” If we continue to have a very high vaccination rate, a third dose for the majority of the population, despite the fact that this variant is going to be predominant, I believe that we are facing prospects that are not particularly good, but are not particularly worrying, ”Ezquerra highlighted.

“Because what we are seeing is that it produces a mild disease, which is not affecting beyond the overflow, which we are always commenting on, in Primary Care or in emergency services, but which is not having an impact on the hospital sector, especially in the face of what we saw in the first wave with such high mortality ”, he has settled with some optimism before the advance of the coronavirus in Spain.
