康沃爾郡的假日季節到來之前,Covid發出警告

康沃爾郡和斯基利群島公共衛生主任Rachel Wigglesworth說,人們應該採取基本的預防措施,並保持最新的疫苗接種。

她說。"儘管我們都想把這一流行病拋在腦後,認為科維德已經消失了,但不幸的是,它在很大程度上仍然存在,並再次在我們的社區中迅速蔓延。

"我們並不要求人們再次擱置他們的生活,我們希望每個人都能在我們美麗的郡享受暑假。

"我們所要求的是,人們記得採取那些我們知道的對科維德有用的基本預防措施,也許最重要的是,確保你的疫苗接種是最新的。"

我們要求居民和遊客確保他們和他們的家人充分接種Covid疫苗,並在符合條件的情況下進行春季強化接種。

康沃爾郡議員、皇家康沃爾醫院急診科顧問Andy Virr說。"有一種看法認為Covid不會再引起嚴重的疾病,但我可以向人們保證,這與事實相差甚遠。

"這種病毒仍然導致一些人病得很重,可悲的是繼續造成死亡。

"我怎麼強調都不為過,人們保護自己和他人的最佳方式是接種疫苗。"

Rachel Wigglesworth, director of Public Health for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, said people should take basic precautions, and keep up to date with vaccinations.

She said: "Much as we'd all like to put the pandemic behind us and think that Covid has gone away, unfortunately it is very much still here and is once again spreading quickly through our communities.

"We're not asking people to put their lives on hold again though and we want everyone to enjoy the summer holidays in our beautiful county.

"All we ask is that people remember to take those basic precautions that we know work against Covid, and perhaps most importantly of all, make sure you're up to date with the vaccinations."

Residents and visitors are being asked to make sure they and their families are fully vaccinated against Covid, and to get the spring booster if eligible.

Andy Virr, Cornwall councillor and emergency department consultant at the Royal Cornwall Hospital, said: "There is a perception that Covid doesn't cause serious illness anymore but I can assure people that this is far from the truth.

"The virus is still causing some people to become very ill and sadly continues to cause deaths.

"I can't stress enough that the best way for people to protect themselves and others is to get vaccinated."
