Chief Sanitary Doctor of Ukraine Ihor Kuzin stated that the new outbreak of coronavirus infection is expected in autumn; however, it can take place earlier as Ukrinform reported.

“The rise of incidence we expect in autumn 2021, approximately in October-November,” he said.

Kuzin added that due to the spread of Delta strain, the outbreak can take place earlier but “there are all possibilities to prevent it,” in other words, vaccination.

Thus, the Chief Sanitary Doctor of Ukraine noted that the immunization should take place quickly to enable the majority of the population to get at least one dose. Besides, Kuzin noted the importance of basic anti-epidemic events – personal hygiene, social distance, and face mask requirement.

Earlier we reported that the Ukrainian Ministry of Health plans to speed up the vaccination of the population by increasing the rate to 1 million vaccinations per week.

Meanwhile, the World Health Organization continues to call for the suspension of the revaccination campaign around the world.

This comes after the head of the vaccine research group at Oxford University, which developed the AstraZeneca vaccines, warned yesterday that many more people around the world would die from Covid-19 if Western political leaders "relinquish responsibility to the rest of humanity" by giving preference for revaccination for their population.

“Countries with high coverage are seeing a separation of Covid-19 cases and deaths, while countries without vaccine access are seeing a sharp rise in deaths. No one is safe until everyone is safe, and therefore we need a moratorium on boosters, "Adhanom said.
