Béla Merkely, rector of the Semmelweis University of Medicine, said that the infection curve of the fourth wave will be very different from the previous ones since it will be flatter. However, he warned that everybody, who did not get a jab, would catch the virus because the delta variant is very infectious.
According to portfolio.hu, the fourth wave will not overburden the Hungarian healthcare system like the third did last fall – he added. Talking about the third jab he said that it should be taken only if six months passed after the administration of the second jab. Furthermore, it is recommended for the elderly and those struggling with chronic diseases.
He cleared that in Romania the number of new infections is growing because the rate of the inoculated people is very low. Therefore, he does not recommend anybody to travel there.
