The Delta variant worries in the autumn, when it is not excluded that one may occur new wave. If in Italy for the moment the epidemiological situation appears under control, the same cannot be said of Europe, where after ten consecutive weeks of decrease in cases a new increase has been recorded, linked precisely to the spread of the Delta variant. There is already talk of new red areas in view of autumn: second Matteo Bassetti there will come a point where it will be said that they concern the unvaccinated.
Reached by Adnkronos, the head of infectious diseases of the San Martino hospital in Genoa declared that “we can do what we want, but from August the Delta variant will be predominant. The only way we will have to defend ourselves from the Delta variant will be to have 85% of Italians vaccinated by October 15th with 2 doses. If we arrive at the 15th of October with 85% vaccinated, the Delta variant will give us a mustache, if instead we get there with 65% it will be pains. If we have, and I hope not, 30% of unvaccinated Italians – warned Bassetti – you can say that we will have 16-17 million potentially susceptible people and that is too much ”.
And at that point, new restrictions could be triggered, but not for everyone according to the infectious disease specialist: “At that point it will be necessary to further tighten the measures against those who do not vaccinate: are you unvaccinated? Don’t go out. Have you decided not to get vaccinated, to put your health at risk but also that of others? Well, the vaccinated will lead a normal life, the unvaccinated will lock themselves up at home ”.
