But the peak intended as the maximum point of the epidemic curve” of the coronavirus “I believe has been reached. This week I think we are determined to consolidate the data and have definitive confirmation” . The epidemiologist Pier Luigi Lopalco, professor of hygiene at the University of Salento, explains this to Adnkronos Salute. The Secretary of Health Piepaolo Sileri of the same opinion, according to which on covid and infections, today in Italy “we are experiencing a pandemic peak. Obviously there will be, then, a decrease in cases. And all the rules that we are putting today, in my opinion in a relatively short time, they can be modified again to loosen their grip. ” And also as regards the request to change the ‘colors’ model for the Regions, “this reshaping will not be necessary because, due to the trend of the virus, in a few weeks we will return to a situation in which the yellow will disappear”. Pierpaolo Sileri, the Undersecretary of Health, said this to the microphones of ‘Radio too’, on Radio 1. For Sileri, however, preserving the color system “is essential in case, one day, further more worrying variants arise” As regards the more stringent rules “we must consider what we are doing not as something fixed, which will last indefinitely. But as something that can be modulated according to what we need. The Omicron variant is putting us in front of a virus that runs more but seems less serious in a vaccinated population, with a peak that we have probably reached and that will begin to decrease. In the coming weeks, many of these rules will be further revised “.” The Covid data bulletin – therefore ensures Sileri – remains. Today, however, the number of infections is not important, but the number of hospitalizations and people in intensive care. The weekly trend must be explained, which gives a more truthful picture. ment, in terms of communication, nothing changes “. The bulletin, therefore, “is that. Help must also come from the media and from how the data are highlighted. We must give better data, but better communication must be made on those data”, on the significant numbers “today the most hospitalizations are that contagions “, he concluded.
