Delta variant, Bassetti: “No red areas but sequencing”

The hypothesis of the red zones in the event of an increase in infections for the Delta variant does not convince Matteo Bassetti. “Today talking about red zones or lockdowns is useless, Italians need to get vaccinated because with the Delta variant the final objectives of the vaccination campaign have changed: we have to immunize 80-85% of the population. We cannot accept that millions remain without vaccines. of people “, underlines Adnkronos Salute the director of the Infectious Diseases Clinic of the San Martino hospital in Genoa, for whom” it is unacceptable that at a time like this Italy remains in 1% of the cases sequenced, and even reach 10% “. in this regard “I would like to hear a stronger word from the institutions on the sequencing and genotyping of registered cases”, says Bassetti. “The red zones or the lockdowns are not even being done by the English – he adds – they can be an extreme solution but do we really want to close the Italians again? We must focus on tracing cases, especially those arriving from abroad”.
