Nino Cartabellotta, President of the Gimbe Foundation, intervened, answering various questions, to the microphones of the broadcast “Italy has awakened”, Conducted by the director Gianluca Fabi, Matteo Torrioli is Daniel Moretti up Radio Cusano Campus.
The number one of the Health Education and Research Foundation commented: “The numbers are still manageable, but they reflect the situation of 3 weeks ago. Sorry that the control room is only now meeting. Too many over 60s are still unvaccinated, what are you waiting for? If the color system is set as the first parameter on the weekly incidence it is evident that some regions risk the yellow zone. It seems a déjà-vu to arrive in September with the hypothesis of using the Dad when we have had all the time to prepare, school cannot be the last wheel of the wagon. Stop Astrazeneca is J&J because they were no longer used, in fact now the vaccination campaign has become dependent “
Cartabellotta (Gimbe): The Covid situation
“We are a little upset because we read news and see numbers that we certainly don’t like compared to the idea we had of absolute tranquility in the summer”, said Cartabellotta. “If we talk about new cases per day, we are around 1400 cases per day which is a manageable number and is not having any impact at the hospital level. We reiterate the need to increase the numbers of swabs and sequencing, to accelerate the vaccination of the elderly. The situation has been known for a few weeks, to hear that only now there will be a control room to discuss this sorry “.
Cartabellotta (Gimbe): The parameters for the colors of the Regions
“When we approach a period of greater circulation of the virus with a lower impact on hospitals, there is a risk of the yellow zone, which is why the Regions are asking to change the parameters, but this does not mean that tracing should not be strengthened. If the color system is set as the first parameter on the weekly incidence, it is clear that some regions risk the yellow zone ”.
Cartabellotta (Gimbe): The school
“Once again we are approaching the next school year with the hypothesis of distance learning. There has been no structural enhancement. The focus was on vaccines in the 12-19 range, but to date 3 out of 4 have not received a dose of the vaccine. It seems like a dejavu to arrive in September with the hypothesis of using the dad when we have had all the time to prepare. We rightly reason to reopen everything, but is it possible that school should always be the last wheel of the wagon? “
Cartabellotta (Gimbe): Astrazeneca and J&J stop deliveries
“The fundamental problem is that these delivery suspensions are related to the fact that we are not using the doses of Astrazeneca and Johnson & Johnson. It is evident that with a view to global redistribution of vaccines, if a country does not use certain vaccines, they are sent to other countries. In fact, now the vaccination campaign has become dependent, I would say Pfizer employee”.
