At work for what he calls a normal autumn. In an interview with Giacinto Pipitone in the Giornale di Sicilia on newsstands, the commissioner Ruggero Razza speaks for the first time after returning to the Sanità saddle.
The first good news comes from vaccinations. “The pace of the last few days sees us at the top in Italy. I am optimistic, we will achieve herd immunity by the summer. Total immunization of the elderly and frail subjects is already taking shape and this will reduce the pressure on hospitals in the autumn. We will need fewer beds for Covid patients, because the vaccine will make the effects of the virus less severe. “
News in sight. in hospitals: “We cannot afford to block ordinary hospital activities again in the autumn. Many of the construction sites opened with commissioner powers will be completed by the end of the summer. We will not be forced to convert the normal wards into Covid Hospital“Basically there will be Covid and normal departments at the same time and this will make it necessary to employ more staff.” Many hires have already been made. And the additional resources allocated for this purpose by the latest Ristori decree can be used. There is a rule in the regional budget with which we foresee that in public competitions, those who played a role during the pandemic must be valued in the score“.
