“We will have a terrible October, not like that of the first wave” of Covid because “we will not have lockdowns, but we will have a crazy increase in mortality among the fragile”. This is the gloomy forecast of Walter Ricciardi, professor of Hygiene at Cattolica and advisor to the Minister of Health, Roberto Speranza, speaking at the 25th National Congress of the union of doctors and health managers Anaao Assomed, underway in Naples. “When I say fragile – explains Ricciardi – I am thinking of a mortality of the over 80s who will arrive in October unvaccinated with the fourth dose and to all the other fragile” such as transplant recipients, “among which there is an increase in contagion. These are all factors that will lead us not to have that striking alarm of the first waves, but to a sharply increasing mortality “.
