The average age of coronavirus patients is declining, and the phenomenon may be due to the fact that fewer younger people have taken the vaccine – said virologist Miklós Rusvai in the M1 morning program of M1.
The specialist added that the majority of people over the age of 70 and those with a chronic illness have been vaccinated, as have many people aged 12-18, so those who are still unvaccinated in the middle age group are more at risk. Miklós Rusvai also said that the epidemic data in Hungary are better than a year ago; fewer died from the complications of the disease and fewer are on a ventilator.
The virologist emphasized that as the flu pandemic approaches, it is worth asking for a flu vaccine, and in addition, wearing a mask is what significantly limits the spread of various viruses. The specialist encouraged everyone to wear a mask on public transport and in shopping malls.
