Abolish curfew now? “I’d be more to do it, but enforce it. Bringing it to midnight perhaps for this May period, until we have a significant reduction” in the numbers of Covid-19, “and then in June, mid-month, eliminate it altogether.” . This is the path suggested by Matteo Bassetti, director of the Infectious Diseases Clinic of the San Martino hospital in Genoa and a member of the Covid-19 crisis unit of Liguria. “The curfew done in this way is not only useless – he explains to Adnkronos Salute – but it is on the contrary”, in the sense that “it is physiologically counterproductive. the same number of people in a shorter time. The curfew has as its primary objective to discourage people to go out, to go around, but in this way it does not discourage them – warns the expert – rather it concentrates them in a shorter period “.
