By then, it is expected that 96% of the population over 60 years old and suffering from serious diseases will be vaccinated.
The government hopes that after the end of May, the municipality will revise the risk standard. Once almost all the population with the highest risk of death has died of the disease, it is possible to gradually advance the planned delivery stage in the local area. 19. Vaccine according to the current estimated schedule, just in case the vaccine is introduced into the country without new “unstable factors”.
Prime Minister António Costa (António Costa) announced this intention on Thursday and pointed out the measure in the report. Next step to cancel event restrictions, And the risk matrix indicators used by the government to determine the following situations: During the opening ceremony, seven counties will not advance, while the other four counties will shrink, Because they increase the incidence of new coronavirus infections.
“Does this mean that we won the pandemic at the end of May? No. It means that starting from the end of May, we will be safer than today. By then, we will be able to redo what he pointed out,” Measuring risk”.
According to data from the national working group responsible for vaccination, the government expects that by the end of April, all people over 70 years of age will be vaccinated. It is expected that at the beginning of May, people over 60 years of age will be covered, as well as people with serious illnesses, making them more vulnerable when they are sick.
Therefore, according to Costa, “96% of the population may have been vaccinated in the age group with the highest mortality rate” at that time, so that the current risk matrix indicators that guide this population can be assessed more reliably. Restrictions implemented at the national level.
The Prime Minister explained: “We will face a less risky situation, which will certainly justify the adoption of the new standard framework, but this obviously does not mean that the risk will disappear before the pandemic is eliminated.” The final standard Redoing helps “save the summer” and related seasonal economic activities.
