“The” covid pandemic in Italy “is not over. If you can stay away from Sars-Cov-2 it is an excellent thing, both for the elderly and the frail, who still risk, but also for young people who can meet the long Covid. A tool to stay away – imperfect, but important – is the mask “. And in particular the Ffp2. Thus at Adnkronos Salute Massimo Galli, former director of Infectious Diseases at the Sacco hospital in Milan, in particular “I would be careful not to abolish it on public transport at this time. With the cancellation of this measure, in fact, we will put many fragile people in the condition of exposing oneself to risk using public transport “. Read also “The surgical mask – remembers Galli – protects the people we meet from our virus emissions. But for a protection that significantly reduces the risk of getting infected, we must use the Ffp2”, continues Galli, giving an example: “the helmet for motorcyclists is an instrument of protection in the event of a fall. The Ffp2 is, in the same way, an individual protection instrument that limits the possibility of getting infected even though, unfortunately, we know that it does not work 100%, as there is no helmet that keep in the face of a very serious accident. But we do not throw it away for this. In the same way you cannot hang the mask on a nail. “.
