The Ministry of Health of Azerbaijan has commented on lifting the quarantine restrictions, APA reports.
An infectious disease expert at the Ministry of Health Tayyar Eyvazov in an inquiry of APA told that the issue of lifting the current restrictions should be approached very carefully and the vaccination process should be continued.
According to him, the epidemiological process is currently under control: "We know that a pandemic is accompanied by an outbreak of the disease in the form of waves, and usually each subsequent wave is caused by a new strain of the mutated virus. In some countries where most of the bans have been lifted, there has been an increase in the number of re-infections, and experts say it is wrong to be in a hurry.
T. Eyvazov added that in some countries, a new version of the omicron strain, called "invisible", is spreading rapidly, infecting more people. does not increase, ie the disease is mostly mild, and inpatient care is not overloaded, as most patients are treated at home. This makes it possible to go for more softening.
In view of this, I think that the issue of lifting the current ban should be approached very carefully and the vaccination process should be continued. "
