However, the number of confirmed cases is about ten times higher than in previous waves. This is due to the fact that most of the currently infected people do not know about their condition (do not have any symptoms) or have so few symptoms that they do not bother with the test. Due to the fact that the anti-epidemic measure has been canceled, at least several hundred thousand people are now certain to be infected.
Despite this, there are ten times as many covid patients in hospitals today than in the worst days of the epidemic. An average of only ten patients die of covid a day. However, as we now know, falls and deaths occur more often after several days of exposure, so it is likely that we will see worse.
