The delta variable It is frightening for Europe and especially Great Britain, which has benefited from the total reopening to bring infections back: in the past 24 hours nearly 30,000 have been recorded, compared to 37 deaths. Fortunately, the latter number remains very low because the vaccination campaign is in advanced state in the country ruled by Boris Johnson: at both doses the level of protection is as high as 95 percent.
What is happening in Great Britain should also sound alarm bells in Italy, where the delta variant will soon become prevalent and nothing can be done to avoid this. Guest On airLa7 broadcast by David Barenzo and Concetta Di Gregorio, Matteo Bassetti On the subject: “In August, this alternative will be as prevalent as today in England. We must invest in a vaccine: if we arrive in October with 80-85% of Italians vaccinated we can be calm, Otherwise, it will be very painful“.
The infectious disease specialist appealed to a sense of shared responsibility and especially to teachers, given that more than 200,000 had not been vaccinated: “In the last year and a half, the school has not been like this, we would like our children to return to a safe school. To do this, children should not be vaccinated. Not only should teachers be vaccinated. This summer is so patheticThere is a heavy responsibility for the policies that vacillate around vaccines, without taking a clear position. Bassetti commented.
