Koronovirus: The double mask is coming in supermarkets and public transport
Said Professor Charalambos Gogos
A committee of experts is discussing a double mask in supermarkets and means of transport.
“The sooner and the better the measures we have to follow, the better the situation will be,” said Charalambos Gogos, a professor of pathology at the University of Patras and a member of the Ministry of Health’s expert committee.
“In any case, I think we will go into a good recession at the end of the month and at the beginning of next month, given that the population is starting to be vaccinated en masse, there are significant increases in vaccination coverage, which will come slowly and increase platforms “he continued, speaking to THEMA 104.6 and the journalist Giannis Antipas.
“Our goal is to go on to gain a significant degree of immunity in the difficult groups we have, in order to reduce the pressure on the health system,” he noted.
“The season is difficult, the winter is difficult, the conditions are favorable for the virus and its spread, we will go indoors due to the cold, here is the big bet to be able to keep the measures and avoid the crowds. “Overcrowding is a risk of death,” he added.
Speaking about the double mask, which seems to be the next step in defending against the pandemic, Mr. Gogos said that a discussion has been going on for two weeks, given the issue of transmissibility.
“The issue of the double mask has started and is being discussed not only indoors, but also in public transport, supermarkets and so on. In these areas a smarter tactic in the use of the mask is also discussed worldwide. So one could recommend the use of this so-called double mask, a surgical mask from the inside and a fabric mask from the inside, so that it completely covers and prevents the entry of droplets. In these enclosed spaces the use of such a mask is useful and saves a percentage. “It’s a smart way to reduce the likelihood of transmission,” he explained.
“This drug has the advantage of acting against the virus in the area it goes to, in the lungs. Therefore, the side effects are much smaller and the effectiveness is immediate, because it acts immediately. It is a very satisfactory medicine, I wish we had it soon, it will be an additional tool very important for the disease “, he added, referring to the preparation that is being tested in Israel.
