Covid, Pregliasco: “Other regions in the yellow zone for Christmas”


Dec 1, 2021

Other regions in the yellow zone for Christmas. To think so is the virologist Fabrizio Pregliasco, professor at the State University of Milan and health director of Irccs Galeazzi, to ‘Non Stop News’ on Rtl 102.5. “I fear that the yellow color will also arrive in other regions, I believe that all this is still something in the making. The vaccination and the” anti-Covid “revaccination are a maintenance and a reminder that the virus is still there, so keep that new ‘etiquette’ with great attention at this moment I believe and hope it will allow us to override the night. And metaphorically, the night is this winter. I hope it will be the last important battle, except for other bad variants that may emerge “. “Viruses are absolute parasites, carrion that exploit the replication mechanism” of the cells “they serve”. Faced with the new Omicron variant of Sars-CoV-2, “the fact that the data to date tell us that the symptoms of infected people are mild gives us hope. We have to wait a bit” to understand “the tightness” or the “possible reduction in the effectiveness of vaccines” available today. However, “the preliminary Israeli data here also comfort us, saying that with three doses the answer is good”, stressed the virologist. Has Omron been overestimated? “There is emotion – replied the medical director of Irccs Galeazzi in Milan – because everything related to Covid involves us directly. It is welcome to point out that the virus is still among us, that there is this natural evolution of the virus, because all viruses look for spaces of diffusion in their ‘market’. Unfortunately this market is us. The hope, from some signals that emerge but “are” all to be confirmed, is that this variant is basically trying to be more benevolent with the organism: it is convenient for a virus to make the most of the host that decides to parasitize “. It is right” from an institutional point of view “to highlight the” need to keep attention and tracing ability that is already in difficulty. The yellow areas that are coloring – observed the expert – represent the fact that the incidence of the disease increases and, when there are so many cases, this isolation of outbreaks becomes more difficulty ile “. As for the” future vaccination campaigns “against Covid-19, they must be imagined” as those of the flu: no longer a generalized offer for the entire population, but “aimed at” protecting the most vulnerable people “, he still stated Pregliasco. “This virus will remain with us”, reiterated the medical director of Irccs Galeazzi in Milan. This is the message that comes from the appearance of the new Omicron variant and “also from this moment of increase in incidence facilitated by the weather, by temperature changes, by being indoors, by openings, which so far it has been possible to implement thanks to vaccines. But precisely: subsequent vaccinations for the fragile, the new drugs, and I believe that we could live better with this virus “, hopes the expert.
