“The virus continues to circulate, we must continue to wear the mask. In Great Britain they are struggling with a very high contagion because they do not wear masks and do not respect social distancing. So, the virus gallops “. Are the words spoken to “Tuesday” (La7) from Ilaria Capua, director of the One Health Center of Excellence at the University of Florida, adding: “We must understand that the tools we used at the beginning of the epidemic are still valid: we will have to keep wearing the mask and we will have to be careful when we are at Closed. Finding many indoors, without a mask, will make the infections go up again“.
Regarding the obligation of green pass at work, the virologist observes: “The government must protect public health: we are at the beginning of the end of a huge health emergency. The government must do all it can to protect the vast majority of people. He made tools available to get back to work. Choices must be made trying to protect the majority of citizens and respecting minorities ”.
Capua reiterates the fundamental importance of the vaccine: “Science is the great winner of this battle. But do you remember last year when I said we had to tighten our belts for another two months and then we would be out? Here, science has given the answers. It must also be taken into account that, in the presence of a pervasive event like this, individual freedom is part of health. S.and we are sick and if we cannot carry out our everyday life, it is clear that we are not free. Vaccination becomes a tool for being free“.
