"As soon as we have vaccines permitted for use among children, we will immediately recommend this vaccination," Mr. Pinevich informed.

According to the Healthcare Minister, the Wuhan strain practically did not affect children, but the Delta strain behaves differently. “The Delta strain became prevalent in our country this spring but we did not observe anything by and large in summer. We registered sporadic morbidity and a minor rise but the situation changed after September 1st [the beginning of the academic year – BelTA’s remark].
