“With Galli in Forte dei Marmi the dinner of the catastrophists? No. Galli and I are not pessimists, we are just prudent”. Thus Andrea Crisanti, professor of Microbiology and Clinical Microbiology at the University of Padua, to the microphones of ‘A sheep’s day’ on Rai Radio 1. “Pessimist gives a negative sense – says the microbiologist – while we are on the scale of prudence, more or less on the same line “. Too cautious about the March reopening as Galli admitted? “Certainly. But at the time we didn’t have any arguments to predict the positive outcome. After all – reiterates Crisanti provocatively – if nothing had happened at the Montarone cable car, would they have done well to remove the brakes? This is the question to ask. however – he adds – nothing happened this month but there are already 7 thousand deaths, let’s remember. Opening must be opened – he concludes – but in safety and with caution. All the work of a doctor is to minimize the risks of the patient and the same what also applies to the community “. As for the debate on the number of seats at the table in restaurants, Crisanti argues that “there is no exact number, it is only a matter of common sense”. “I think that when we have reached 70-75% of the vaccinated – says the microbiologist – we will be able to remove almost all the restrictions”.
