TALLINN - Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas said that COVID-19 is rearing its head again and that is why people should go get COVID-19 vaccine booster doses.

According to Kallas, although the COVID-19 risk level is average, the situation is close to orange in terms of hospitalization. "This means that in the last three weeks, the number of hospitalized people has multiplied -- from 75 to 234 people," the prime minister said.

According to her, booster doses help prevent serious illness and risk groups should definitely think about a vaccine injection. "COVID-19 has not disappeared," Kallas added.
