Vaccines against the mutant strains of COVID-19 should be approved for use as soon as possible, said Gao Fu, former head of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in response to the public's concerns about the epidemic situation in China.
 

China's National Health Commission (NHC) announced on January 14 a total of 59,938 COVID-19-related deaths between December 8, 2022 and January 12 this year.
 

Considering the risk of local infections of Omicron XBB and its subvariants, and the Spring Festival travel rush involving over 2 billion travelers, the largest in scale over the past three years, the peak of infection may appear in some rural areas due to the return of the villagers, said Gao in an exclusive interview with China Newsweek.
 

Gao predicted the infection peak may happen between February and March while the peak of severe cases are expected to reach early February. He advised those who have not been inoculated with boosters should get vaccinated as soon as possible.
 

高福:第二波高峰可能会出现在偏远农村地区,春节后可能还会出现小高峰

春节来临,会不会引发新的感染高峰?新冠大流行将何时结束?围绕相关问题,日前,中国科学院院士、中疾控原主任高福进行了回应。
 

偏远农村地区将出现感染高峰:城市中感染高峰已过,但对于还没有进入感染高峰的地区,比如说一些偏远的农村地区,由于春节期间民众返乡,可能会出现感染高峰。春节一过,2月至3月,可能还会出现一个小的感染高峰。2月初可能会见拐点。

老年人或需半年打一次疫苗:未来XBB及其亚分支引起本土关联病例风险较大。新冠疫苗应学习流感疫苗的批签发,尽快批准使用。对于老年人来说,很可能像接种流感疫苗一样,流感疫苗需要每年接种一次,新冠疫苗也要每半年打一次。
