Experts around the globe are already concerned by the new wave of positive summer symptoms caused by omicron variants. One of them is an authority in the subject, who has been with us through the entire pandemic. Luis Enjuanes, a CSIC virologist is what we are referring to.
Telemadrid has been granted an interview by Enjuanes in which Enjuanes expressed support for the re-instatement of some restrictions to stop the "premature" increase in infections.
It would be a good idea to revert to restrictions and to wearing a mask at all times. Omicron is always changing and doing two things. It spreads faster because it infects more easily, and is also less sensitive to vaccines.
He added, "Everything is coming to an end everywhere, and it would be prudent to increase the measures and reduce the massive acts, and go back to a little mask, not completely, but on many occasions."
Enjuanes said that Omicron will receive "more adapted vaccines" in the fall from Moderna and Pfizer. This new version expands the antigenic response of the omicron variant along with an old one. Although the omicron provides protection against itself, it does not protect against previous versions. Therefore, an older version must also be included. It is less effective. It is more common in people who have been vaccinated.
Enjuanes said that these viruses can cause up to 50 different symptoms. Many people have a combination of several pathologies, and some of the symptoms may be more severe. She concluded that there are many people who are not the same as before, in terms of mental clarity and physical problems.
