Nikos Tzanakis, Professor of Pulmonology at the Medical School of the University of Crete, spoke to SKAI and the “TODAY” show about the highly contagious infections that plague the whole of Europe, as well as about prevention.
Mr. Tzanakis began with the phrase “all of Greece is sick” and spoke of 20 to 30,000 cases a daywith respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and influenza taking the reins.
Among other things, he said that there should be no complacency, as RSV also affects the elderly, pointing out that “older people, with underlying diseases, are seriously ill, resulting in are taken to hospitals».
Only ally in the fight against viruses seems to be the vaccine for the coronavirus and of course that of the flu, which contains the “H3N2” strain that is also present in the flu, thus creating a shield of great (if not complete) protection as the professor then stated.
Finally, Mr. Tzanakis linked the contagiousness of the respiratory virus, characterizing it as particularly strong, through hands, surfaces and objects, recommending good antisepsis.
