The Minister of Health, Alexandru Rafila, says that the SARS-CoV-2 virus is now at a multiplication rate of 1.7, the highest level since the beginning of the pandemic.

“At the moment we are obviously on an upward trend and it remains to be seen in the coming days what the evolution will be. We hope it stabilizes, but I don’t think we need to be extremely optimistic right now. Close to this value was in the wave 4, 1.63 or 1.63 I think it was at some point, at the moment we have about 1.7. This means that an infected person gets 1.7 people, that is, more than one person. It’s a lot because, especially considering the incubation time, which is quite short, especially for the Omicron strain it is 3-4 days. This means that in 3-4 days we should multiply by 1.7 the number of cases registered in this time interval “, the dignitary stated at EuropaFM.

He cites other states where infections have exploded.

“It is possible to have tens of thousands of cases in Romania as well. Consider that a country three and a half times larger than us, such as France, has reached a quarter of a million cases every day, so we cannot rule out such a development. The most important thing is how we will be able to take over the people who need hospitalization “, Rafila added.

The Minister explains the difference between vaccinated and unvaccinated people.

“The proportion of cases that have complications and that even lead to death, between vaccinated and unvaccinated people, is 1 to 9, ie 9 times more unvaccinated people end up with severe forms of the disease and unfortunately end up and the death. This is generally known, in terms of the proportion of people hospitalized between people infected with the new coronavirus there, the differences are not so great “, Al also explained. Rafila, Minister of Health.
