The average age of coronavirus patients is declining, and the phenomenon may be because fewer younger people have taken the vaccine, said virologist Miklós Rusvai on TV news channel M1 on Sunday morning.
The specialist added that most people over the age of 70 and those with a chronic illness had been vaccinated, as have many people aged 12-18, so those who are still unvaccinated in the middle age group are more at risk.
Rusvai also said that the epidemic data in Hungary is better than a year ago; fewer died from the complications of the disease, and fewer are on a ventilator.
The virologist emphasized that as the flu season approaches, it is also worth asking for a flu shot, adding that wearing a mask significantly limits the spread of various viruses.
The specialist encouraged everyone to wear a mask on public transport and in shopping malls.
