Romania has a few weeks to prepare for the upcoming fourth wave of the epidemic, Health Secretary Andrei Baciu, vice-president of the National Commission for Coordinating the Vaccination Campaign (CNCAV), pointed out in a TV interview. He believed that the examples of Britain, Spain, and Portugal show that a highly contagious delta virus mutation can multiply the number of infections by a factor of up to 6-8 weeks.

The official added that the delta virus variant is spreading in these countries despite the fact that a large part of the population is vaccinated, but the number of deaths and serious cases is low due to immunization. According to him, this means little more pressure on the health care system and society than an influenza epidemic, so life can slowly return to normal. The extent to which the situation in Romania becomes critical in September will largely depend on whether the vaccination campaign can be boosted, the CNCAV vice-president warned.
