“The goal of” anti-Covid “vaccination is not to avoid infections, but to prevent people from going to hospital and dying. In an ideal world, where we are all vaccinated, even if I pass the infection to another, I shouldn’t even make swabs because anyone who becomes infected at most will have a very mild flu-like form. Obviously the vaccine reduces the possibility of contagion, not eliminates it, but the possibility of getting infected is much rarer “. To clarify this, to the microphones of ‘Italy has awakened’ on Radio Cusano Campus, is Matteo Bassetti, head of infectious diseases at the San Martino hospital in Genoa.
“It is an absolute fake news – he says – to say that this vaccine is not safe because it has not been tested enough. The mRna technology was born in 1990. The experimental phase did not last short, it lasted just the right amount. If to build the Bridge of Genoa – exemplifies the infectious disease specialist – it took me a year, then does it mean that the bridge is insecure because it usually takes 20 years to build a bridge? Obviously, being a particular period in history, for the experimentation of this vaccine is A number of volunteers was enrolled in 5 months that we usually managed to obtain in 5 years “. But “if the arguments of the no-vax are 5G, that children become sterile, then this is not information, it is science fiction – urges Bassetti – If one believes in donkeys that fly, he is free to do so, but I am a man of science I do not believe it”.
“Not getting vaccinated puts the health of others at risk if you are someone who works in the hospital, but also at school or in the police forces – then underlines the expert – In this scenario, perhaps we should get to the obligation”. “In the other scenarios – he specifies – people are free to do what they want, but then they don’t come and tell us that we didn’t tell them. I’m sorry to think that you can prevent an infection and you don’t do it after the state he offered you the vaccine for free, took it everywhere, even made you choose. ” “Not taking advantage of this opportunity, knowing that in some areas of the world they don’t even have the vaccine – warns Bassetti – it’s a shame”.
