Covid Italy, Nobel Parisi: “We risked 500 thousand deaths”

“From the beginning it was clear that Covid was a disease that could easily have caused more than half a million deaths in Italy, if the containment measures had not been in place”. This was underlined by the 2021 Nobel Prize in Physics Giorgio Parisi, Sapienza University of Rome, who today received the third dose of the vaccine at the Policlinico Umberto I.

“The measures have been enough to reduce deaths by an extremely high number, but they would have had to continue for an unlimited period had it not been possible to make vaccines. Vaccines have stopped the growth of cases that have occurred. this summer because of the Delta variant “of Sars-CoV-2,” and were therefore crucial to allow us a life that is becoming more and more normal. “

The “third dose” of the anti-Covid vaccine “is essential for people who are particularly at risk both in terms of age and other diseases, so I do it willingly because it greatly strengthens the defenses of the first two doses, which even though being substantial they are decreasing a bit with the passage of time. The fear of getting vaccinated is irrational “.
