CSIC virologist Margarita del Val has warned this tuesday in The summer program by Telecinco that vaccinated people have to continue to take care and protect the very young.
The expert, who has been warning for half a year that vaccines do not prevent contagion, wanted to send this message again, since Spain is in full swing of the accumulated incidence.
“I’ve been saying it for six months. Vaccinated people are protected from symptoms, but not from contagion. They can be infected, we know that about three times less, but they can catch the virus “, he assured.
Del Val has continued by saying that what vaccines do is that the symptoms are always less than if they were not vaccinated. “The viral load of these people who are infected while being vaccinated, whether or not they have symptoms, is quite high, it is almost as high as that of unvaccinated people. Therefore, it is very likely that they can infect others ”, he stated.
The virologist stressed that now the vaccinated have to protect the unvaccinated, which are young people: “There may be many infections and it is true that there will be few hospitalizations and deaths of young people, but they must be protected. He has long-term covid sequelae problems and it is very worrying. “
“One in ten people between 15 and 30 years old ends up with problems concentrating, memory, mental fog and one in six ends up with fatigue and problems breathing well,” he explained.
