New Omicron vaccination raises hopes that the pandemic will end soon
Thousands of Swiss people are still infected with the corona virus every day. But with the Omikron vaccination expected for autumn, the number of infections could drop. The first experts are cautiously optimistic.
For once, it was “good news for the fall,” writes the German Federal Minister of Health, Karl Lauterbach, on Twitter. The medical student is actually not known for good news – especially not since the outbreak of the corona pandemic. But now it looks “more and more as if there would at least not be an additional variant in addition to BA.5,” Lauterbach continues. This is the conclusion reached by the German-British mathematician Christina Pagel, who advised the British government during the pandemic.
