Dr. John Ioannidis, a graduate of the Medical School of the University of Athens, says that Greece and other Western nations are likely transitioning out of the pandemic and into an endemic phase of the coronavirus.

Although many countries are still grappling with high hospitalization rates, that is most likely due for the most part to the lingering effects of the Delta wave, he states.

“Omicron has the characteristics of an endemic wave,” the medical professor states, telling Greek Reporter in an exclusive interview that this includes “seasonal appearance, high rates of transmission, disproportionately low death burden in a setting where there is very high background immunity due to prior infection and/or vaccination.”
