When Vittorio Sgarbi is a guest on TV, you know, the possibility that spirits light up is very high. And in fact a real uproar broke out between the well-known art critic and Andrea Romano of the Democratic Party, during the Canale 5 Morning News program yesterday, 10 August. The episode focused on Covid issues, from the obligation of the Green pass to the increase in infections. The microbiologist of the Sacco hospital in Milan Maria Rita Gismondo intervened in the talk saying: “The vaccine is necessary, but we do not tell lies: it does not limit the spread of Covid”.
Then he increased the dose by clearly saying: “The Green pass is dangerous and harmful, it is interpreted as a free all. A vaccinated and an unvaccinated positive have exactly the same viral load and this means that the chance of spreading the virus is absolutely equal. In this respect, the Green pass is of no use because it does not distinguish a vaccinated from an unvaccinated “.
Statements that are not liked at all by Andrea Romano, a supporter like the entire Democratic Party of the Green Pass and of the importance of getting vaccinated. “It makes me very, very impressed to hear a doctor saying deeply wrong things,” replied the deputy. Regarding what the microbiologist said shortly before, the exponent dem corrected the shot by specifying: “Gismondo claims that a vaccinated has the same viral load as an unvaccinated. The doctor should know perfectly well and if she does not know it should inform herself, that those who are vaccinated run a much, much lower risk of becoming infected with Covid than those who are not vaccinated “.
“The Green pass is not a useless tool, it is like a driving license and in the last few days more than 20 million people have downloaded the GP, these are sterile and useless controversies”, added Romano. At that point Vittorio Sgarbi intervened: “I am not a virologist like Dr. Romano. I blindly trust the scientists and the teacher who says prudent things even if contradicted by a gentleman who is a politician convinced that he knows more. It seems to me a paradox that deserves a fight but it can’t be done ”.
The turmoil in the studio broke out with the new intervention of the deputy dem, who accused Sgarbi of being a denier of the first hour. At that point, the mayor of Sutri lost his temper: “Never said! You fool! I opposed Giuseppe Conte’s work of preventing people from going to the beach or cycling outdoors. Now I’ll shut you up, co ** ion! Liar, liar, liar! I have never denied Covid, I denied that Romano used his brain or had it “. It took some time for the presenter Simona Branchetti to restore calm in the studio. HERE the video of what happened in the episode.
