SARS-CoV-2 is considered dangerous individually rather than socially

We are entering a pandemic phase where SARS-COV-2 remains dangerous individually, but not socially, a well-known virologist said in an interview with PAP. He added that in his opinion, it is too early to eradicate the epidemic.

a. Gastrointestinal tract: Herd immunity reduces transmission of infection

“I do not advise you to say goodbye to the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. Unless it goes with the cross, but I doubt whether it will work” – Prof. Gut. He added that even the community’s collective immunity to the virus does not protect against infection by itself.

“It will simply reduce the transmission of the virus and this gives an opportunity to eliminate it. However, the requirements are much higher. However, I am afraid that it will come back somewhat in the long run. However, we have reached this stage of the epidemic that has become SARS-COV-2. Dangerous. Individually, not socially “- noted the virologist.

In his opinion, a person who is not vaccinated because, for example, he decides that the epidemic no longer exists, may become ill in the next infection season, if he has not yet acquired immunity.

This virus, however, already Against the current wave of infections, our hospitality has not been threatened. We have already done it ”- Professor Gott assessed.

When will the epidemic end?

But in his opinion, it is too early to eradicate the epidemic in Poland.

“I will wait for the external situation to stabilize. In many countries, the mass infection is not over yet, the virus is mutating all the time and it may look different, for example in the fall of 2022. I recommend some restraint in this regard” – he added.

At the same time, he stressed the need for a greater understanding of the mechanisms that govern epidemiology.

“Neither vaccines nor naturally acquired immunity protect us from infection. Only a physical barrier can protect against infection. Simply put, at this point, fewer and fewer people need hospitalization, support for respirators, and this qualitatively significantly changes the possibilities and needs of fighting an epidemic ” – pointed out.
