“Summer? I see it badly. The problem is that there is an exponential growth in infections, it is a ramp that then goes up. The scenario in my opinion is that we will arrive at at least 10 thousand cases per day in the short term, with a further tendency to growth as a function of the fact that there is a further eclipse of consciousness among people, in addition to what there was for the European football championships, and for the style of continuous inattention that is seen among the no-vax worries “. This is how virologist Fabrizio Pregliasco, professor at the State University of Milan, at Adnkronos Salute, in light of the numbers that see contagions increasing and now hospitalizations for Covid-19 are also increasing.
“I hope – hopes the doctor – that this lower proportionality of serious cases will remain and that this efficacy of vaccines demonstrated in the field will be maintained. Certainly – warns Pregliasco – the increase in infections will lead some subjects also vaccinated to be positive. Here in Lombardy we have 85% of new cases among the unvaccinated, 9% among those vaccinated with a single dose and the rest with two doses. But it is clear that – he explains – by increasing the number of vaccinated, there could be an effect paradox ‘when in absolute terms there will be more cases among the vaccinated, but “this” precisely because the vaccinated population increases “.
How the summer season will proceed, according to the virologist “will depend a little on us, on the ability to manage tracking, on this slightly more generalized adoption of the new etiquette”. And “in my opinion, a bit more stringent checks would also be needed”. As for new closures, “I would see ‘tailored’ intervention actions – the doctor suggests – only in particular contexts. In short, modulated elements for a surgical war on the virus”.
