Sileri, strict controls from the borders to the Olimpico turnstiles
“The quarantine must be strictly observed. In the United Kingdom the number of infections is on the rise and so is that of deaths, albeit slightly. The movement of thousands of people, from areas where the virus circulates in that way, involves obvious risks’ “. Pierpaolo Sileri, doctor and undersecretary of health, says this in an interview with Corriere della Sera, inviting us not to let our guard down.
“It would be an unforgivable mistake,” he stresses. The five days of quarantine for those coming from Great Britain are theoretically enough to guarantee safety, he adds, “the problem is whether the rule is respected, whether it is really possible to ensure that those arriving from the United Kingdom observe the prescribed period of isolation – he explains – Considering the times, however, it is impossible to come to Italy now to watch Saturday’s match while observing the quarantine ».
«It is not easy to control thousands of people, just as it is not easy to guard all possible arrival points in our country – he concludes – A plan to deal with the situation is still being defined, I have confidence in the work of the competent authorities. Personally, I would also place targeted checks at the entrance to the stadium as an extreme barrier: if you want to enter, you have to prove when you entered Italy ».
