The appearance of this Monday of Fernando Simon It is being highly criticized by professionals in the Health sector. Until Antonio Garcia Ferreras, presenter of Red Hot, has ruled on a specific phrase of the expert.
The epidemiologist and director of the CCAES made it crystal clear at a press conference that the increase in cases of coronavirus in Spain cannot be related to the new British strain and directly blamed the behavior of the population during Christmas.
Simón also added that the variant will have “a marginal impact, at least in our country” although he has remarked that in the United Kingdom “it is another situation”. “This increase is associated with our behavior,” he repeated.
On this, Ferreras has commented: “Marginal was also the impact when it emerged in China, when it was in South Korea, when it arrived in northern Italy. Marginal, marginal … in an evolution of the pandemic, it doesn’t matter where the case is, because it can reach you ”.
A few words to which he has also responded, for example, Elvis García, Ph.D. in Public Health from Harvard University, which has even affirmed that “if the British strain settles in Spain, we could double deaths and return to the initial chaos”.
“It is not to be contrary to Fernando Simon, but it is better to err on the side of being cautious and not let someone else sneak us in like back in February, when the virus was “only in Italy,” García pointed out on Twitter.
