Professor of Aerobiology at the Technical University of Munich, Athanasios Damialis, speaks to "Ora Hellas" about the role of pollen in the increase of cases. Mr.. Damialis clarified that "no virus is spread, like coronavirus with pollen. The virus is not transmitted to pollen. But, "because pollen weakens our immune system, the transmission of the virus is more likely.".
Continuing, the professor stated that "as we are exposed to other factors, such as pollution and depletion of the immune system, so it is with pollen ".
The "weapon" against pollen is "the masks, which is a fairly reliable measure. It is very important to emphasize two factors for precaution. The first is the masks, the second is to be informed when we will have pollen.
For example, will have good weather in the coming days, which means we will have pollen. Some trees, like the olive, will begin to bloom. This means that we avoid walking for some hours and if we can not avoid it, we definitely wear a mask ".
