It is clash between Matteo Bassetti and Massimo Galli. The infectious disease specialist of San Martino di Genova pointed the finger at the head physician of the Sacco hospital in Milan and in particular at a sentence he uttered in the living room of Cartabianca on Rai 3. “How do you say on a TV show not to give AstraZeneca vaccines to girls and women between 35 and 55 years old?“, Bassetti wrote controversially on Facebook.
The infectious disease specialist would have lost his temper when Galli – a guest of Bianca Berlinguer – he said: “I would not vaccinate girls and women aged 30 to 55 with AstraZeneca”. Bassetti’s social reply was immediate: “On what scientific basis are these claims based? This is a personal position that is against Ema’s and against the British and international scientific literature “.
Then the actual attack against the primary of the Sacco: “When you talk every night, on every TV show and you are a certain age, sooner or later you say stupid. And last night it was said serious and heavy “. And again:” Sometimes if you don’t know what to answer, it’s better if you shut up or let those who know more than you do the talking. We would avoid bad figures (but by now we are used to those) and important damage in communication on vaccines ”.
