New warning from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki professor of Environmental Engineering, Demosthenes Sarigiannis, about the course of the COVID-19 pandemic in Greece.

"By the end of the month, we will have 3,500 cases a day and a bigger increase afterwards," warned Sarigiannis when speaking to ANT1.

Sarigiannis noted that in recent days there has been a slowdown, but "since yesterday we observe an increasing trend."

It is very important, as he said, "to do rapid testing in areas that show a strong upward trend."

At the same time, Sarigiannis pointed out that if COVID-19 vaccinations do not reach 75% in autumn, "we will have 6,000 cases a day."
