The delta variant also prevails in our country: “We may see this variant only by the end of July”

“We’ve always predicted that there will be about 50 percent of infections with the delta variant in the first week of July,” explains Molenberghs. “By the end of the month, we may see only the delta variant again.”

The virus variant that originated in India is more easily transmitted, so the question remains whether we should be overly concerned. “Don’t panic, but we should be concerned, yes. We see the beneficial effects of vaccinations, which provide very good protection against the delta variant – a lucky break, so to speak – but we must not forget that two-thirds of the population is not yet fully vaccinated.

Unfortunately, we have not yet gone so far as to say now: It is no longer painful.”

So Molenberghs will wait a little longer with more relaxation. Hospitalizations won’t increase that much, but the numbers are on the rise. Therefore, we must make good use of the time we have against the next consultation panel to see where we stand. I will definitely think carefully.”
