Covid, Bassetti: “Hospitals are emptying”

-

“The figure that we have to look at is not so much the percentage of positives, but what is the load of the hospitals and by now they have been discharging for 3 weeks”. Matteo Bassetti, director of the Infectious Diseases Clinic of the San Martino hospital in Genoa, said this to Adnkronos Health, commenting on the latest data from the Higher Institute of Health and the Ministry of Health on the progress of Covid-19. “In the last week – underlines Bassetti – if you look at the curve of people in hospital, it is a very steep descent: every day we have 70-80 fewer patients in intensive care, between 10 and 12% in a week of attendance. less, and the same we can say of the average intensity so it means that hospitals are gradually emptying and are not filling up with new infections “. The new infections are there but – highlights the infectious disease specialist – it means that it is starting vaccination works: the age of the infected is lowered and therefore, if out of 100 eighty-year-olds went to hospital 20, out of 100 fifty-year-olds one goes to hospital. There will still be hospitalizations and we will continue to have them throughout the summer, but this – concludes Bassetti – is part of living with the virus. Let us remember that we did not take all these measures to avoid contagion in the population, but to prevent hospitals from collapsing “. We recall at 42 days Administer the second dose of the anti-Covid vaccines to mRna Pfizer and Moderna after 42 days, explains the ‘Adnkronos, “seems to me a measure of common sense. All the data tells us that already after 3 weeks from the first dose there is already an adequate degree of immunity, so basically the second dose only serves to maintain longer lasting immunity. I’d be pretty calm. “” In the same period – concludes Bassetti – we vaccinate twice as many people. If before you had vaccinated a million in those 21 days, now in 42 days you vaccinate 2 million “.
