Green pass and Delta variant, in these hours we are discussing the hypothesis of a remodeling of the certification after the first dose of the anti Covid vaccine due to the Delta variant. From 1 July the green pass will make it easier to travel to and from all countries of the European Union and the Schengen area. The certification, in digital and printable format, issued by the national platform of the Ministry of Health, may be requested to participate in public events, to access nursing homes or other facilities, to move in and out of territories classified in the red zone or orange zone. The green pass is issued to those who have been vaccinated against Covid or have obtained a negative result on the molecular / antigen test or are cured of Covid. The spread of the Indian variant, however, could also affect certification. It is possible that with the Delta variant of Sars-CoV-2 it is possible to “reshape the Green pass after the first dose of the vaccine. But we leave this to the scientists and I would wait for a couple of weeks – said Undersecretary of Health Pierpaolo Sileri, speaking on Radio 24 at ’24Mattino’ – But if it is true that protection from this variant exists after two doses of the vaccine, it is clear that, in addition to running with second doses, we need to reshape the Green Certificate. At the moment it is premature to say so. I would wait 14 days for the analysis of the incoming data from the United Kingdom and for the control of the prevalence of the Delta variant in Italy, currently close to 20%. how much it rises in a week. And then I would do a reflection on this “. For Sileri, doing the Green pass with a single dose was not a mistake because “when it was formulated the data showed that it was fine”. The one against Covid, he added, “is a dynamic battle. The virus is dynamic and we must be ready to adapt. At the moment – he repeated – there is no need for a change to the green passport, but it must be done. Data analysis he will tell us. ” “Right now, this morning, 13 million and 700 thousand people” in Italy “have already downloaded the Green pass and I think this is a very positive fact. It signals that there is great attention and that this mechanism we have built even at a European level it is working “, underlined the Minister of Health, Roberto Speranza, yesterday on a visit to Tuscany between Prato and Florence. “It is clear that all other assessments will be made step by step”, he replied on the sidelines to those who asked him if the issue of the Green pass will have to be reshaped in light of the Delta variant, not sufficiently covered by a single vaccine dose.
