The fourth covid wave has begun, which although it is different from the previous ones, still worries scientists. Physicist Giorgio Sestili is also cautious and calculates 40,000 cases a day by the end of August.
The physicist creator of the Facebook page ‘Coronavirus – Scientific data and analysis’, says that there is growth “exponential with a significant doubling time and therefore is clearly a fourth wave. With these numbers, we could reach 40 thousand cases at the end of August“.
Sestili, however, clarifies “that this is a different wave because we have vaccines and a good percentage of Italians are immunized“.
But how to control this fourth wave without closing the country? “It seems to me that the vaccination obligation for some categories is inevitable, for example teachers – suggests Sestili – Then I imagine that, if the case curve goes up, at the end of August or September the yellow zones will also trigger“.
