It looks like not everything is over and perhaps the next pandemic is already lurking around the next corner.

The peak of the wave is still to come

On the vacation island of Mallorca, a drastic increase in coronavirus cases is being recorded before the start of the vacation season. “The disease is currently widespread on the islands – and the trend is still rising,” reports the Spanish Ministry of Health.

Two new variants are said to have an impact on the rising number of cases: The new Covid variant “KP.2” and the so-called “FliRT” variant, which is already responsible for 15 percent of cases. The peak of infections is still to come.

And with it the question of what we have learned from the health catastrophe that has kept the world on tenterhooks for two years. In an interview with the German news magazine “Spiegel”, Christian Drosten, head of the Institute of Virology at Berlin’s Charité hospital. He draws a bitter conclusion, at least on a global scale: “We are not better prepared for the next time, but worse.”

In Austria, Styrian Prof. Florian Krammer has been head of infection medicine since March. The internationally renowned expert in vaccine development shuttles between the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (New York) and MedUni Vienna. This week he was visited by Nobel Prize winner Eric Kandel and his wife, who also live in New York.
