“The vaccines” against Covid “make Italy all the same, for the first time”. This is what the immunologist Mauro Minelli, responsible for the South of the Italian Foundation for Personalized Medicine, tells Adnkronos Salute, who takes stock of the epidemiological situation Covid-19. “Last year it was not like that. Waiting to abandon the epidemiological bulletins in their routine ritual, today we can say it: the vaccination campaign is working great and the numbers are approaching everywhere at the border of the white zone. This responds to the suspicions of certain ‘no vax’ fringes, to which we say that we are still fighting the battle against the coronavirus even without them “. “The contagion index, which must not be a totem, is definitely falling and below the warning levels – observes the expert – Intensive care relieves the pressure everywhere and what matters most is that the positivity rate is regularly under 3% nationally for 6 days (2.2% on Saturday 15 May). There are reasons for hope, in short, those that we had already predicted for a few weeks, sticking to reality and not to the wishes. They are vaccines and not the lockdowns that are leading to this new situation – Minelli specifies – These are the vaccines that show that you can party outdoors without risking a resurgence of infections “.” We are 2 weeks after the now famous Inter party in Piazza Duomo – points out the immunologist – and in parallel Milan records a downward trend, perfectly in line with the data of other Regions “. “There is a difference. Mass vaccination produces a homogeneous evolution of the numbers of the contagion, clearly towards historical lows, between territories and regions, and not dissimilar as it was in May 2020 when some regions showed absolutely incomparable criticalities. trust in science is to rely on solutions that medicine can find, as in the case of vaccines – he concludes -. It is not science that of those who place the suspension of indefinite sociality as the only solution “.
