“The victory of the Europeans is a fantastic event, but it is certain that what we saw in the streets with the celebrations is the apotheosis of the transmission of the virus. The best thing to do to increase its transmissibility”. Massimo Andreoni, scientific director of the Italian Society of Infectious and Tropical Diseases (Simit) and head of Infectious Diseases at the Tor Vergata Polyclinic in Rome, highlights this at Adnkronos Salute. “There is an epidemiological reality with which we must deal – recalls Andreoni – The increase in infections and the risks of the Delta variant are under everyone’s eyes. There are outbreaks also in Italy and everything suggests that this variant is becoming dominate with great speed “.
“The interventions to be done always remain the same: if the cases increase, we will arrive at the yellow, then orange and red areas. The color system has never changed. What should emerge very strongly is that it is necessary to reach this blessed herd immunity. If we can, we can even think about letting the virus circulate “, he underlines.
“It is wonderful to see the squares full, but it is clear that an increasing number of infections will be observed as has been observed in other European countries”. This was stated by Undersecretary of Health Pierpaolo Sileri, guest of ’24 Mattina ‘on Radio24. “I believe that the Delta variant will become prevalent and, unfortunately, it will happen much earlier. I am afraid by the end of the month 3-4 times the infections that occur today”.
