When it comes to Covid, at the moment the example of UK it does not make you sleep peacefully, given that the country governed by Boris Johnson has started towards the abyss from an epidemiological point of view: despite the vaccines, the situation is getting worse due to the inexistence of masks, distancing and green pass. From this point of view, Italy is teaching and keeping everything under control while waiting for a large slice of the population to be covered by the third dose.
“I am convinced that we will administer it to all segments of the population – he said Walter Ricciardi, advisor to the Ministry of Health – after six months from the second for those who have been immunized with mRna vaccines, after two months for those who have been protected with a single injection of Johnson&Johnson“. In this sense, the indication that comes from the American FDA is clear: with what was considered the single-dose vaccine there is actually a need to act quickly enough with the recall, also because the “bad season”, the coldest one, is now arriving and will accentuate the increase in infections.
“It should not surprise us – explained Ricciardi – also because there is an increase in tampons. Furthermore, there is still a slice of unvaccinated people and this is an extremely contagious virus that infects mostly susceptible and unprotected people. If we don’t scratch this hard core, the cases with the cold season will increase ”. However, generating more of an individual problem than a social one: “They will not compromise the collective situation. There will also be an increase in hospitalizations, but not such as to put the hospitals in crisis ”.
