“The turning point is there and if we are careful the covid will not return”. Thus Franco Locatelli, president of the Higher Health Council and coordinator of the CTS, in an interview with ‘la Repubblica’. “By now – he explains – the data are consolidated in the direction of a very marked reduction of new cases, of serious or fatal forms”.
“The data that make me optimistic? Certainly, the cumulative incidence reduced to 32 cases per 100 thousand inhabitants per week – says Locatelli – 836 beds are occupied by covid patients in resuscitation, compared to 3,700 in early April. It seems to me that the whole country wants to access vaccines on vaccines. Then there will always be a hard core of reluctant people, but it is a much more contained phenomenon than expected ”.
On the obligation of the mask, Locatelli says “I understand the desire of people to free themselves from an object that is also very symbolic. A gradual path will be taken, starting from outdoor contexts, where there are less risks of contagion, and then moving on to indoors. We are still waiting a month, a month and a half ”.
