Covid in Italy today, “for 5 consecutive weeks we have seen a reduction in the number of new weekly cases. Now, for the first time, not only has the reduction stopped but there are very slight increases. ‘1.5% more, but it is significant that the decline in cases has stopped and above all there is an increase in cases in 12 Regions and as many as 49 provinces. It is therefore not an isolated fact but it is the sign of increased viral circulation “. Thus Nino Cartabellotta, president of the Gimbe Foundation, on Cusano Italia TV ch.264 ddt.
“Elements of great concern – he reassured – do not seem to exist: it is still too early to understand whether it is a rebound in the contagion curve or a subsequent wave. It will take 7-10 days to understand more. In the meantime, we must keep an eye on the curve and, more importantly, it is essential to wear masks indoors because we know that aerosol is the main mode of contagion “.
The positive rate of the swabs at 11.4%, over a million positives and 40 thousand new cases per day, are data that demonstrate a high circulation of the virus due to “the relaxation of the population, the spread of the more contagious Omicron variant. BA.2, of the late spring that forces you to stay indoors and the decline of vaccination protection, even after the booster, against the infection after a few months. With this high viral circulation today, thinking about eliminating masks indoors would be madness ”, He reiterates.
As for the Novavax covid vaccine, “about 11,600 doses were administered from February 28 to March 9, of which just over half were over 50: in this range almost a race was expected for this vaccine, which is produced with more traditional technology and therefore should have brought the skeptics closer to vaccination. However, the numbers of new vaccinates are very low. We will see if in the next few weeks there will be a further rise: for now there has not been that boom in vaccinations by people who until now have refused mRna vaccines “.
