Covid “did not go on vacation, but is taking and will vacation with us. Therefore responsibility, perhaps without carelessness but not even media terrorism”. Thus to Adnkronos Salute the immunologist Mauro Minelli, responsible for Southern Italy of the Foundation for personalized medicine, taking stock of the epidemiological situation Covid-19. “Even if it is summer, masks are needed – the immunologist reiterates – for a year we have been saying that the heat is not an inhibitor of the virus, as distance is needed and, where possible, being outdoors. Let’s just say – he adds – that we do not foresee outbreaks of Covid-19 on the mattress on the beach or on the boat “. Therefore, the reference is once again to the “sense of responsibility and balance, this is what is needed, but on the part of everyone, patients and doctors, citizens and public authorities – remarks Minelli – We therefore reconstruct the situation in order to entrust the public opinion clear messages: Omicron is the variant of Sars-CoV-2 that has been shown to stand up to the measures to combat the epidemic. It is the variant that has spread the most in planetary space and more rapidly in the times of the so-called pandemic . It is the mutation that has generated the greatest number of significant mutations, capable of rejecting, and sometimes of evading, at least in part, the defenses generated by vaccines. It is also the one – he adds – that has produced the lowest number of hospitalizations in the population. young and healthy. And it is the one that has shown a symptomatology almost comparable to that of a heavy seasonal flu, which to consider banal is always wrong “.
