What experts fear – Why they do not want to relax the measures

Maybe its course pandemic in our country to show that it is heading towards de-escalation, however, the prolonged bad numbers do not allow enthusiasm, with the scientists to maintain reservations for what a member is born, while there are many who claim that the situation still remains “fragile”.
On Wednesday, the death toll after several days was in double digits, as according to him ΕΟΔΥ the new deaths of patients were 87, the cases amounted to 19,618, while 515 patients are hospitalized by intubation.
At the same time, a total of nine regions of the country have heavy epidemiological burden with the positivity index exceeding 4%, ie they are above the level of risk, while there are others that reach this percentage. The biggest problem is located in Mykonos with the positivity reaching 6.59%, followed by Rodopi with 5.38%. In Evros, the percentage amounts to 4.85%, while high rates of virus positivity also exist in the Aegean since, at 4.49%, the viral load is estimated in Lesvos and 4.41% in Samos. Equally high percentages exist in the Ionian with 4.14% in Lefkada and 4.26% in Zakynthos.
The data in this period are daily under the microscope of scientists, who, however, at least several, appear reluctant to give the “green” light for further relaxation of the measures, especially with regard to Halloween, as they see the danger of a new launch lurks.

Sarigiannis: The most logical thing is to “sacrifice” Halloween to celebrate Easter

Meanwhile, the decisions about the carnivals are postponed for next week, in order to have a clearer picture with the evolution of the pandemic. Experts appear divided, however, and there are many who argue that carnival events are risky because the consequences can be unpleasant. Professor of Environmental Engineering, Demosthenes Sarigiannis, speaking to SKAI, noted that the pandemic is still showing signs of stabilization, but stressed that the situation is still fragile. Therefore, he stressed that it would be better to “sacrifice” Halloween in order to celebrate Easter with more relaxed measures. In fact, when asked if the Halloween festivities should be canceled, he said: “I would like to say no, but it is the most logical approach.”
For her part, epidemiology professor Dora Psaltopoulou commented in view of Halloween that the problem with these forms of entertainment is that those who participate cannot be traced.

Fauci: The US pandemic is coming to an end

The most optimistic news comes from the US where the leading American epidemiologist, Anthony Fauci, speaking to the Financial Times, expressed hope that soon all restrictions will be lifted, including the mandatory use of a mask.
The United States is close to emerging from the top of the pandemic, Fauci said, noting that a combination of vaccines, treatments and previous illness will soon make the virus more manageable.
“As we emerge from the full pandemic phase, these decisions will increasingly be taken locally rather than centrally. “There will also be more people who will make their own decisions about how they want to deal with the virus.”
Asked when the restrictions could end, he said he hoped it would be “soon” and agreed with the proposal that it could happen this year. However, he warned that local health departments could reinstate temporary measures if cases were found in the community.
Fauci’s comments added to a growing sense of optimism among health officials around the developing world that the Omicron variant could herald the end of the most damaging phase of the pandemic.
The director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases was one of the most skeptical voices in the US about the pandemic and very often came into conflict with former President Donald Trump.
