Well-known infectious disease doctor, Tritan Kalo, has once again paid attention to the appeal to citizens for extra care during the beach season, as the symptoms of the highly contagious variant of Covid-19, the one known as 'Delta', are the same and can be confused with the symptoms of "summer flu".
