“We will have forms of advanced cancer again that we have not seen in decades” | interview

António Parreira, Clinical Director of the Champalimaud Clinical Center, argues that we must at least try to mitigate the loss of less attention suffered by “non-covid diseases” when “attention has been drawn to everything related to the problem of the pandemic “. Some of the measures to maintain a comprehensive responsiveness have been taken at the center he operates, which deals exclusively with cancer. Worldwide, however, the doctor warns that the situation is worrying. Regarding when to vaccinate, António Parreira believes that “cancer patients should be vaccinated just like the others” and in some cases could even be considered a priority.
