Indoor restaurants, Burioni: “Surreal discussion on the seats at the table”


Jun 3, 2021

An “important” discussion, but conducted in a “surreal” way. The virologist Roberto Burioni, lecturer at the Vita-Salute San Raffaele University in Milan, thus defines the debate on the 4 seats at the table in restaurants today the protagonist of a technical table and of the debate between the Government and the Regions. In an intervention on the ‘MedicalFacts’ website he founded, the scientist points out that “no one, neither the institutions, and surprisingly not even the restaurant associations, has brought up the most important element from a health point of view: who is he at the table vaccinated or not vaccinated? “. “The current discussion on the number of seats that should be granted to restaurateurs at each table to reopen restaurants safely” in the Covid era “is important”, writes Burioni, because “if it is true that too lax decisions could lead to health dangers. , it is equally true that unnecessarily severe decisions would cause further avoidable economic damage to a sector that has already been terribly affected by the events of the last 15 months. However, I find this discussion conducted in a completely surreal way “, not considering precisely the key factor. “Why”, and “it is good to say, as this is the indisputable and undeniable scientific reality – the virologist points out – if there are vaccinated people at the table it is one thing, if there are unvaccinated people it is another. Someone should have the courage to start discussing it seriously “.
