The virologist Christian Drosten considers it possible that Germany will remain a second Corona-shaft spares. “Maybe we can avoid a second Shutdown,” said the virologist from the Berlin University hospital Charité of the news magazine “mirror”.
The science had, in the meantime, a better understanding of the infection events. “Now we know the Virus in more detail, we know better how it spreads.” This is done in a few so-called super-spreaders, i.e. Infected for many of the contagions responsible. “And such an infection, it can control events better than a uniform spread under the Radar, as we have assumed in the beginning,” said Drosten. There is now a “theoretical possibility” that the Germans “to come through without second wave”.
It is important to recognize a possible outbreak early and stop by all the contact persons in quarantine without testing you before long. This is the time of the quarantine could be shortened considerably. Contact persons in the future need only to spend a good week in Isolation, because the incubation time and the time in which a person is contagious, be significantly shorter than initially thought, – said Drosten.
Also the Bonn virologist Hendrik Streeck believes that Germany is overrun by a massive second Corona-shaft. He suspect that there will always be local outbreaks. “Maybe it will happen in the fall also increased and, surprisingly – but I don’t think we will see a second wave, the us literally flooded and overwhelmed,” said Streeck the Newspapers of the editorial network Germany (RND) from Friday.
Basically, Streeck sees good opportunities to keep the Virus manageable. A crucial key for mitigation, he sees in the prohibition of large-scale events. “The tie seems to have been the closest we have brought,” said the Director of the Institute for Virology at the University hospital Bonn.
As the main weapon against the Coronavirus, a vaccine, to the worldwide with high-pressure research is valid. Some of the candidates are in the first clinical trials with a vaccine is not expected this year, however.
Streeck doubts, however, on a soon-to-be success of the vaccine search. “Against HIV over 500 vaccines were constructed, but none has worked,” he said. You would have to adjust to the possibility that no vaccine will be found. “The Virus is here and will remain. And we need to prepare ourselves to deal with it,” said Steeck.
