“For 2022 I do not make any predictions. The end of the pandemic? Maybe. But the problem is the choices we make. If we go on like this, we are in the hands of the evolution process of the virus”. Looking at the scenario that lies ahead for 2022, the latest measures of 2021 and the Omicron variant of Sars-CoV-2 which runs faster and faster, causing infections to surge, virologist Andrea Crisanti ironically relies on the magnanimity of the virus for the new year , he explains to Adnkronos Salute. The director of the Department of Molecular Medicine of the University of Padua yesterday defined the new rules on the quarantine of close contacts of positives (eliminated for those vaccinated for less than 4 months or with a recall, provided that self-monitoring and wear the Ffp2 mask). A “renunciation of tracking”, for Crisanti. The expert had also identified “not thinking ahead” as “original sin”, as happened with the “third doses”, which in his opinion should have “started as early as June” and could have “mitigated the current situation” . “This is why I say that we must hope that the virus will grace us – he concludes – and that it does not become even more virulent and resistant”.
