The director of the Institute for Health Information and Statistics, Ladislav Dusik, expects that the number of infected people will at least double in October and November compared to current data.
“We are entering a period of respiratory illness and we are entering a period when we do not have any important public measures,” he said on Czech television on Wednesday.
He emphasized that although the current, more prevalent variant of the coronavirus is significantly more contagious than the previous ones, at the same time it does not have serious consequences and the population is more immunized.
He added that if the same type of virus remains and vulnerable populations are vaccinated with another dose, it is possible to manage the fall without significant health effects.
Recently, the number of people tested for coronavirus has also increased. On Wednesday, labs processed nearly 11,200 antigen and PCR tests, a week ago there were about 2,000 fewer. Positivity decreased in the week-to-week comparison for all types of tests.
For many of the diagnostic tests that people with symptoms of the disease undergo, the percentage of positives is about 29 percent. For epidemiological tests, which are performed, for example, due to contact with an infected person, it has exceeded 17 percent, and about six percent of samples are positive for preventive tests.
