Valeriu Gheorghiță, about the epidemiological evolution in Romania
“I think that when we talk about relaxation measures we have to look at several criteria, not just the percentage of people vaccinated. The most important thing is related to the epidemiological evolution.
Fortunately, the epidemiological evolution in Romania is very good. We are in a green scenario. Even the European Center for Disease Control places us
on the map of Europe from this point of view as being in a very good situation from an epidemiological point of view “, said Valeriu Gheorghiţă, according to B1TV.
Why doesn’t collective immunity increase?
According to the head of the National Committee for Coordination of Activities on SARS-CoV-2 Vaccination (CNCAV), over 4.6 million Romanians have been vaccinated with at least one anti-covid dose.
“On the one hand, we must admit, it is the natural, natural evolution of the pandemic to reduce the level of virus circulation during this period. It is a period of calm between the waves. On the
on the other hand, we have, however, a significant number, 4,650,000 people, who have received at least one dose of vaccine. Nearly 4.4 million people are completely immunized right now.
And, of course, we have mainly immunized people in urban areas, where the physical interaction between people is higher, much higher compared to what happens in rural areas. The demographic characteristics of our population, over 50% population, in rural areas, which is spread over a large geographical area, which does not interact much, has a low mobility.
All these things do and have
made it possible that, ensuring a vaccination rate of 30%, 35%, even 40% and over, as in Bucharest, we have a good control from an epidemiological point of view where the vast majority of cases were generated “, he added. said Valeriu Gheorghiţă.
The head of CNCAV admits that, given that few people are vaccinated and the number of infections is small, mass immunity does not increase.
“It’s not better, it hasn’t increased for two reasons: we haven’t registered a significant number of cases so we can, again, estimate that a large percentage of the population goes through the disease and becomes immunized as a result of the infection.
naturally, the decrease in infections among the population decreases and immunization naturally.
On the other hand, the pace of vaccination has also slowed. It is probably somewhere between 40-50%, it also depends on the geographical region, it depends on one county to another “, said Gheorghiță, according to europafm.ro.
