“Some parties blow the No vax fire, while politics should remain united on vaccines.” It is not the first time that Matteo Bassetti goes to the attack of “his” center-right, but today in an interview with The print the full professor of infectious diseases and head physician of the San Martino hospital in Genoa is particularly explicit. And he points the finger at the Brothers of Italy and the Lega: “As a liberal who grew up reading Montanelli I don’t find them mature, even if the latest release from Trizzino, a former Cinquestelle doctor, and the extreme left are worrying.” Then he also talks about his escort: «It is not normal for a doctor to go around accompanied, to conferences or to friends’ houses. In the end I think: they don’t want to vaccinate, it’s their business. I care more about the safety of my wife and children than the No vax ”.
The third dose of the vaccine will be a booster to be done every year
According to Bassetti, the third dose of the vaccine against Coronavirussi will turn into a booster to be done every year to keep variants at bay. And the virus has a seasonal pattern: «This trend is being confirmed, even in England where it is already cold and schools have been open for some time. Masks help, but they’re not everything. In Italy we will return to 150-200 deaths per day and they will all be unvaccinated ». And the emergency is not over: «6-7 million unvaccinated will be manageable, but the more we proceed with the vaccination, the more those who remain out of it will risk. The Delta variant will infect everyone in one year. The vaccinated will be saved, the others less and of these 5% will end badly ».
