“We already have the Delta variant at home and it will spread.” Massimo Galli, head of infectious diseases at the Sacco hospital in Milan, says this to Adnkronos Health. Spotlight on England-Ukraine: the match scheduled for July 3 in Rome risks attracting fans from England to Italy, where the Delta variant has caused an increase in infections. “Enforcing the days of quarantine must be done and the sale of tickets must be limited to the British living in Italy. The fear that these have already decided to disembark in Switzerland and then come to Italy by train, leads us to say that some measure of prevention is worth taking. This simply in order not to find ourselves in a situation that then becomes grotesque and total lack of respect for the indications given “, says Galli. Read also “To be frank and honest – he underlines – we already have the Delta variant at home and it will spread. We – he clarifies – must put ourselves in a position to make it spread as little as possible and the data represented by a further import is a fact that I believe to be legitimate for prudential interventions “. There is talk of reopening of discos. “If the government and local authorities are able to guarantee the opening and make sure that this happens with the necessary precautions, by enforcing the rules as it should be, then the point can be overcome” and the discos can reopen. “Enforcing the rules as they should be applied – underlines Galli – means with a vaccination pass or even better with an evaluation of the swab at the entrance or in any case within the hours immediately preceding. The point is that the checks are actually there because otherwise I would say that the game becomes unsustainable. I take the liberty of saying this thing – the virologist clarifies – because otherwise we are always at the usual, we turn around and do not resolve “.” The fact that everything else is open to us and the discos remain closed – he underlines – move little because then people end up going to make themselves comfortable elsewhere. And if people do not go to the disco but dance at home or participate in more or less improvised aggregations around, we do not have a substantial modification of the range of the problem”.
