Genoa. No more outdoor masks: now he also asks Giovanni Toti, president of Liguria, on the day the Region launches the awareness campaign to convince even the undecided to get vaccinated against Covid.
“Maybe for a few more days, but certainly we can not spend the summer with the mask on at 40 degrees in an Italy that will mostly be vaccinated – said Toti -. If the vaccination campaign continues like this in the next few weeks we will arrive in mid-June with over half of the Ligurian population vaccinated ”.
On the side of those who support the possibility of removing the mask, including the Genoese infectious disease specialist Matteo Bassetti, there are also i epidemiological data, with a weekly incidence that fluctuates around 20 cases per 100 thousand inhabitants (the threshold for the white zone is 50, it must not be exceeded for three weeks in a row “.
This is why Toti says that today Covid “is one very rarefied disease“. And the mask? “Logically, I would say that it is one of those prohibitions that sooner or later we will have to remove, at least outdoors”. On the other hand it was instead the Minister Hope recently to stop saying that “you should not be in a hurry to take it off, especially indoors”.
