The virologist of the University of Milan sees small signs of improvement brought by the restrictive measures in force
With an Easter just spent between deserted cities in an Italy locked in the red zone, the curve of infections from Covid-19 descends slowly, but among the experts there are those who can already glimpse the first timid signs of improvement. "The restrictions are needed, for this we must keep tight the mesh" said the virologist of the University of Milan Fabrizio Pregliasco, in connection with SkyTg24.
“The responsible behavior of the people is showing its effects, in all regions the pressure on hospitals is lowering. The data in Lombardy show the lowering of Rt and we also see it in hospitals, where we are discharging patients ”, says the scholar, answering the questions of the study.
The day after the Easter celebrations in the red zone, the Interior Ministry’s balance sheet marks 111,202 controlled persons throughout the national territory with 2,643 sanctions and 12 complaints. The 14,797 commercial exercises passed to the scrutiny of the police with 88 sanctioned owners and 34 closures.
For Fabrizio Pregliasco now “the main objective remains the reopening of schools and with a little attention I believe we can close the school year with all the students in attendance, even if attention is needed because the virus can still circulate”.
“Then the other sectors most affected will have to reopen, catering and tourism. However, it is necessary to restart step by step, without exaggerating, we don’t have to do like last year”Is the expert’s recommendation.
During his interview, the virologist and member of the CTS of Lombardy also returned to the malfunctions of the vaccination machine in his region, which led to various disruptions and long waits for the administration of vaccines, on which Pregliasco says that "there were organizational problems , but it is a very complex organization. In Lombardy the problem of text messages caused a sensation, an epic that has seen stumbles but now the problems are over. The clouds on the horizon on the number of doses, however, make us worry. In this war, ammunition is essential ”.
