“Yes, the light at the end of the tunnel can be seen” as the immunologist Alberto Mantovani says in an interview with ‘Corriere della Sera’, “but ‘adda passà’ a nuttata ‘”. The virologist Fabrizio Pregliasco quotes Eduardo De Filippo to say, regarding the coronavirus, that “we still have to grit our teeth, imagining this winter as the last battle with respect to possible resurgence related to the fact – the professor of the Milan State University explains to Adnkronos Salute. – that all the elements of risk are inserted: reopening, open school, work in the presence, an ever less implemented distancing. So I think – foresees the expert – that there could be another ‘wave’ of Covid-19, “however, I believe that spring will take us out of the emergency”.
However, the virologist clarifies, “there will not be a declaration of the end of the pandemic, but an increasingly civilized coexistence with the virus, an acceptance of a number of patients that we will be able to govern better and better thanks to the therapies that are emerging and the end of the emergency aspect “.
As Italy “we are doing well, but what frightens me is Eastern Europe and the rest of the world – highlights the virologist – with the possible emergence of new variants and the risk of starting over. We are in good shape, we are well vaccinated, we can do a little more. But – he warns – it is clear that we cannot hope to be perched and remain a happy island. Africa, it must be reiterated, is a reservoir of variations and suffering, of pain and inequality “.
