Covid Italia, Crisanti: “It’s time to do more tampons”

“As a medical researcher, I am averse to risks and I repeat it. In Italy I think we are gradually eliminating all anti-Covid caution and control measures. And I think that any opening and any relaxation must be accompanied by additional control and surveillance measures. Is Italy doing it? We’ll see if it does. At the moment, it seems clear to me that there is not enough tracking in the various regions of Italy. it is instead the phase in which more should be done, because they have more effect and could stop dangerous outbreaks in the bud “. There are conditions to be respected to prevent the gradual return to life from having consequences that no one would want: virologist Andrea Crisanti is convinced of this. The director of the Department of Molecular Medicine at the University of Padua insists on the importance of tracking right now, and of “not letting your guard down, regardless of the growing number of vaccinations”. Just look at the experience of other countries. “In England – highlights Adnkronos Salute – cases are on the rise. There is concern about the Indian variant of Sars-CoV-2 which has a transmission index that also appears higher than that of the English variant, so it is transmitted more quickly”. At the first data on the rise, he notes, “the British are reviewing the table of reopening. They see the Indian variant with great caution and are not willing to take any risk”. Boys and vaccine obligation “It is clear: without vaccinating against Covid the boys herd immunity is not achieved “he told Adnkronos Salute. “And, of course, making the vaccine compulsory could help. But for the younger ones I would wait to talk about the hypothesis of an obligation. It is very early and there is not enough data on this age group. We need more time”. On the one hand, therefore, the cold numbers that outline the goal of herd immunity, on the other hand the need for a longer time to study vaccines in the youngest, even the rarest adverse events, and the difficulty of conceive an immediate obligation. But how vital is it to achieve herd immunity against Sars-CoV-2? “It depends – analyzes the director of the Department of Molecular Medicine of the University of Padua – If you check the variants and make references to the elderly and the frail, you can do without herd immunity”. Crisanti insists on the importance of monitoring variants of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus: “Whenever a variant with a higher transmission rate comes into play and spreads, the bar for herd immunity also rises. again. For example with the Indian variant, judging from the first available information “.” The requirement for the anti-Covid vaccine could help – he reflects – But it also depends a lot on how to make it compulsory. obligation, for vaccines on which it is currently active, is linked to admission to school “. But for Crisanti it is premature to think of adding anti-Covid to the list as well. “It is very early – he reiterates – There are not enough data on children. And there are aspects such as some reports of myocarditis” post injection with mRna products, in particular in under 30, “which are elements not to be underestimated and on which analysis and insights must continue to have a clear picture. So let’s give time to time “.
