“Why the number of cases is high despite the vaccine? Let’s look at today’s number: 28 thousand 370. The number of hospitalizations due to Covid-19 is 1283. We are not yet at the stage of herd immunity. We see the result of the vaccine in the mild relief of the disease. The number of cases? The number of cases is increasing, but the measure has decreased.”
