“We are very far ahead with the elderly”
“It was a duty today to be close to those who are vaccinating, to give a signal that vaccinations do not stop” explains Zingaretti arriving at the vaccination center of the Nuvola dell’Eur. “ We are very advanced with the elderly. We hope for a summer in which at least the death rate will drop and drop a lot ».
Intensive care is still full
“This does not tell us that it is over – warns the president of the Lazio Region – because intensive care is full also because of the variants but thanks to the vaccine we can give a signal of hope to our country “.
The hope of Johnson & Johnson
On the alarm for the lack of doses launched in recent days, the president of Lazio explains “We trust there is respect for deliveries and we hope in new vaccines like Johnson & Johnson and those of other houses, to take us to even higher levels. Let’s move on with an average of 27,000 vaccines a day, ma we could do much more“. «As soon as new doses arrive – adds Zingaretti – we will be ready to do them. Already today we could triple the administrations, if there were more we could also increase the number of vaccination centers ».
“Half of the necessary doses arrive”
For the councilor for health, Alessio D’Amato, it is precisely the lack of deliveries of vaccines that put the brakes on the campaign: «The machine does not stop, but to reach the goal that Prime Minister Draghi has indicated 15 million doses are needed in Italy per month e one and a half million in Lazio.Half of them arrive. When these doses arrive we can say that the goal is attainable and it seems to me that there is still distance ». «The more doses arrive – he explains – the sooner we get to herd immunity. We are ready to do 60 thousand a day, but it does not seem to me that in April there is this possibility, at least from the things I have heard ».
