Rome, 11 October 2021 – Waiting for Covid bulletin from today of the Ministry of Health and of Civil protection on contagion, deaths, hospitalizations and entrances in intensive care in Italy, arriving in the late afternoon. Come on data communicated yesterday (here the bulletin of 10 October), the epidemic trend is confirmed in decline, the number of new cases remains stable and stands at less than 3,000 units.
But second Andrea Crisanti, director of the Department of Molecular Microbiology dell’University of Padua, i conti on the relationship between new positives and deaths do not add up. “Today in Italy – explains the microbiologist – we have 30-40 deaths a day and a ridiculous number of infections: evidently there is a unjustifiable discrepancy because in all the other countries of Europe and the world there is a ratio of one to 1,000 with respect to the numbers of cases and deaths, so we too should have a much higher number of infections ”. This means that, continues Crisanti, “We may have the tendency to think that with a low number of cases it is all over but it is not”. “In general – he concludes – you have to take the number of deaths, divide it by two and multiply it by 1,000, thus having between 30 and 40 deaths we would have between 15 thousand and 20 thousand infected in Italy”.
School, short quarantines and tampons: how will it work? Questions and answers
Meanwhile, the vaccination campaign. To date, the number of over 12s who have received both doses is 43,275,562, 80.13% of the population. “Today we have reached an important percentage of vaccinated people, perhaps even unimaginable until a few months ago. However, we must also take into account that today we have 8.4 million Italians over 12 who have not even taken a dose, among these there are 4-5 million of working age“, points out Nino Cartabellotta, President of the Gimbe Foundation. “The obligation to Green pass for all workers so far has produced a modest effect on vaccinations. I expected more in this sense “, he comments.” If these 4-5 million workers do not get vaccinated this week, 12-15 million tampons a week would have to be done and this would not be feasible because we do not have this production capacity – he adds. – the solution is that these 4-5 million workers get vaccinated or else it will be necessary to go towards a vaccination obligation “.
