The boundaries between asymptomatic or mildly asymptomatic are not clear. Someone may have a headache, which is a symptom and go to work or spread and spread the virus

His vice president ΕΟΔΥ and Assistant Professor of Clinical Pharmacology George Panagiotakopoulos speaks to “Hour Hellas” about the increased concern about the possible second wave coronavirus, after the outbreak of cases of recent days in many parts of the country.

I hope a horizontal lockdown is not needed, but we must prevent it before it escapes. Depending on the epidemiological picture, we take measures. Where necessary, intervention was made. During this period these areas had a density of cases.

Up to 10,000 tests are performed daily and have an increasing tendency. For doctors, tests are never enough, but the adequacy is satisfactory. R0 seems to be going up from the unit and this is a cause for concern.

Young people are unfortunately more relaxed, more carefree. The boundaries between asymptomatic or mildly asymptomatic are not clear. “Someone may have a headache, which is a symptom and go to work or circulate and spread the virus” said Mr. Panagiotakopoulos and added that “the elderly have learned their lesson and are careful unlike the younger ones”.

In closing, he expressed the belief that the NSS can cope with a possible increase in patients.
