"There is hardly another country in which conspiracy theorists and anti-vaccine specialists have as big a platform as in our country," Dr. Asparuh Iliev, head of the brain infection laboratory at the University of Bern and a safety expert has told BNR. According to him, this impresses the experts who follow the topic of the effect of vaccines against Covid-19 in different countries around the world. The specialist explained that the drop in antibodies months after immunization against coronavirus does not mean that cellular immunity does not work.

According to him, there should be requirements for doctors and nurses to be immunized, because if they became infected, they could become an incubator and many people could suffer.
