Many experts have expressed themselves in recent days in a tone of calm regarding the pandemic and the possibility that a new wave will emerge again, which would be the sixth. In fact, it was Fernando Simón, the director of the Center for the Coordination of Health Alerts and Emergencies, who recently assured that “if there were a sixth wave it would have a very low hospital incidence” and that it was very difficult for it to happen soon. However, there is no unanimity, and this is how Dr. César Carballo, a regular on the ‘La Sexta Noche’ program, said this Saturday night in La Sexta to assess the current situation of COVID-19.
In recent days there has been a lifting of restrictions on nightlife at a general level throughout Spain, and the images of bottles and people without a mask have led Carballo to launch a warning linked to a hypothetical sixth wave. He has asked for “prudence”: “We don’t carry a wave or two, but five. Many times we have thought that we had defeated the virus and we had not. ”
Carballo’s warning about the sixth wave
For the doctor, the images, which reflect irresponsible behavior, “may be the prelude to a sixth wave.” “You have to be cautious. We are against the restrictions, but the problem is that between vaccination and restrictions we have not put enough barriers to be more sure, “he explains.
For this reason, he criticizes the uprising that, although it is “good to remove the restrictions”, it is necessary to “put measures in between to control cases.” “That is what The western world has not prepared and the Asian world has“, he points out in reference to Europe.
Carballo ‘gives’ to Health his third dose
“The best third dose that can be had now is the dose that the third world uses and the countries where the accumulated incidence is skyrocketing,” he stated about the debate on the third dose, and that is that in Spain the Public Health Commission has approved the third dose of the vaccine for those over 70 years from October 25.
“I am a very selfish person, I only think of my own good, I pass from the third world, I do not care, but being the most selfish uncle in the world, the best third dose you can have right now is the dose that the third world puts on, in Latin America, in places where the accumulated incidence is soaring, “he adds. And he appealed directly to Carolina Darias, Minister of Health: “Please donate my third dose. It is the best we can do. Right now, the best third dose for healthy people, who are not at special risk, to donate the third dose so that everyone can be vaccinated. “
