Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez said in a radio interview that one must take into account that Covid-19 is developing from a pandemic to an endemic disease. Experts have been working “for weeks” to treat Covid-19 like the flu. It is therefore planned to relax the monitoring of infections to relieve the overwhelmed health care system.
Spain has a significantly higher vaccination rate and a significantly higher number of infections. “That means Spain is closer to this endemic situation.” According to Kaderali, very roughly, over 90 percent of the Spanish population carries corona antibodies. “And since we’re in Germany, I’d say a long way away.”
