Virologist and microbiologist Milanko Shekler told RTS that it was too late to pass.
According to him, the biggest problems, as far as the worsening of the epidemic situation is concerned, are huge gatherings, festivities, weddings, sports events, concerts without any control.
Shekler, a virologist and microbiologist at the Veterinary Institute in Kraljevo, said in the morning program that, unfortunately, what he was talking about is being realized, but he does not dare to say that the number will continue to grow.
"When we bragged about the huge number of vaccinated people and how we are leaders in Europe and the world, when they asked me to comment, I said – don’t go through like in sports, we start well and lose in the end. "A very similar thing is happening now,” Shekler said.
The biggest problem, as he assessed, are huge gatherings, festivities, weddings, sports events, concerts without any control.
"Kovid passes have been introduced at several music festivals and have shown that it works. Then you didn’t find it necessary to spread it, to use festivals as a promotion. "I advocated passes during the summer, and then when I saw that the number exceeded 2,000 – now it’s too late,” said Shekler.
He believes that the third dose would be more effective if taken after five months.
"I appeal to the state to enable vaccination after the expiration of five months. It is not by chance that Israel started at six months, and then lowered it to five months ", states Shekler.
