“After more than 2 and a half years of pandemic, we cannot yet proclaim the final victory over Covid-19. We still have to make use of responsibility and precaution. Public health has the task of maintaining high safety especially for the most fragile, the elderly. , of those who suffer from previous pathologies “. This was stated by the President of the Republic, Sergio Mattarella, on the occasion of the celebration of the ‘Days of Research’ Airc at the Quirinale. “However – continued the head of state – we feel that the most dramatic period is behind us. Science was decisive. As was the dedication of the health personnel, in every role. As was solidarity, in its different expressions, at all levels: from simple gestures of help between families, in communities, to the common choices made by the European Union. Without the admirable commitment of science to identify vaccines, discovered and produced in record time, even thanks to the discoveries made in the fight against cancer, today we would be forced to count many thousands more deaths “.” If today we can, in most cases, face Covid as if it were a little insidious flu, it is because – Mattarella reiterated – the danger due to vaccination has been strongly declassified; the great adherence to vaccination, due to the admirable sense of responsibility of almost all of our con citizens, urged to make use of it with the awareness of safeguarding, in this way, their own health and that of others “.
