“The Green pass must not only become mandatory for indoor restaurants, but also for public transport such as buses and the subway. From a technological point of view, it is not impossible to apply this necessary measure. We cannot force people to get vaccinated,” however, those who do not want to do so will have fewer opportunities or, at least, will have to perform an antigenic swab every time they want to go to crowded places or use public transport “. This was suggested by Walter Ricciardi, full professor of Hygiene and Public Health at the Catholic University of Rome and advisor to the Minister of Health Roberto Speranza, in an interview with the newspaper ‘Il Messaggero’. Read also From the pandemic, he explains, “we only get out of it if we are rational. Rationality says that we have to vaccinate at full blast, because in this way we avoid serious illness and deaths. Without vaccines, we would have had hundreds of thousands more deaths. huge. Another rational aspect: we have to vaccinate the whole world, even those who live in Asia and Africa. Otherwise we will leave it in 2024. If we follow the path of vaccination and control of the virus we can live normally, if instead we go on with hysteria then yes, we won’t go out anymore “, warns the expert who has repeatedly said not to share the line taken by Great Britain, which has now reached its ‘Freedom day’. “This is a morally reprehensible choice. Michael Ryan, of the World Health Organization, is right, calling for caution and not to remove all restrictions. Johnson’s is a murderous decision, there will be a huge increase in cases, it is an example not to be followed. “We know that the vaccine, which is an important weapon, defends us from the disease, but in some cases not from infection – continues Ricciardi – The Delta variant breaks it. For this reason in the United Kingdom there will be many infected people, forced into isolation. Among them many health workers, hospitals will not hold up. And leaving the virus free to circulate, new variants could develop “. According to the expert, the only way to convince the two million over 60s that they are not getting vaccinated” is to involve more general practitioners. They can reach and convince all clients. Then, at some point, individual freedom prevails, but unfortunately these people will surely fall ill. Almost all of the patients in hospital are now unvaccinated. The problem will ultimately be individual, not for the collective. If we continue to vaccinate, we will not reach the highest numbers of hospitalizations and deaths like last year. Now the road is that of the Green pass, a gentle push. If you don’t want to get vaccinated and want to stay home, fine. If, on the other hand, you want to frequent crowded environments, then you can only do it by proving either that you are vaccinated or that you are immune because you have had the virus or that you are negative because you have recently performed the test “. As for the feasibility of using the green certificate in restaurants at the closed or on means, “if this principle holds true in a country like China that has 1.7 billion inhabitants, why shouldn’t we be able to put it into practice? The technology exists, we all have cell phones, it’s just a matter of organization. If the mobile becomes the ticket, it can be done. Either we understand that the Green pass is the only way to a normal life, or we will always have waves of infections that will force us to close, which will destroy us from a health, economic but also psychological point of view “, concludes Ricciardi defining” not wrong “the adaptation of the parameters for the management of the color zones, as long as” it does not become just a subterfuge to avoid restrictions “and underlining that it would have been necessary,” especially in border control and travel, a European coordination that has not yet it shows”.
