Fabrizio Pregliasco, professor at the State University of Milan, spoke of the risk of a new increase in coronavirus infections in September as is happening today in Great Britain: “This hypothesis exists and from a general point of view what we see in the United Kingdom is the presence of the Indian variant, which we could also have ». And then «the choice to slow down the second dose to give greater impetus to the vaccination, which we are also doing, even if in a more mediated way.
It is important to do the second dose
The virologist also talked about the recent reopening of our country: «I have always said we open with attention. We still have half a million people who can infect others in various forms and with varying intensity ». However, Pregliasco also added a note of optimism: “Fortunately, what we see in England and which in my opinion we can achieve even here is not having a large number of serious cases thanks to the vaccination of fragile subjects”. The key element is the vaccine, for the virologist, which could avoid severe infections and allow a resumption of normal life. However, it remains important to complete the cycle, because, as Pregliasco explains, “The Indian variant punctured the first dose”.
