General Francesco Paolo Figliuolo, commissioner of the Covid emergency, says this to ‘Right and Reverse’. “This target is linked to the plan. We have secured the over 80s, we need to plan ahead of the massive influx of vaccines in June” he stresses, explaining that he expects to vaccinate 60% of the population “by July”.

These are average objectives, in this month in May, we will have 17 millions of vaccines. There could be dead spots that can lead us to a decline, but I am satisfied and it can be increased in June because we will have a more conspicuous number of vaccines “.” The delay – he adds – we will make up for in June, May it is a month of transition, in June when more doses will arrive, I expect around 23-24 million, the capacity will be ready to inoculate whatever is possible.
