Antonella Viola, immunologist at the University of Padua, at ‘Agorà on Rai3 reiterated that she was “always opposed to maintaining the curfew at 10 pm” and positively assessed the prospect of more widespread easing of anti-contagion measures in the short term: ” date of June 2 seems to me also possible for generalized reopening “, he said. “Since we know perfectly well that contagion occurs indoors, we let people stay outdoors as much as possible”, is the scientist’s invitation. “This is a time when we have to push people to stay outside the home and not inside the house,” he stressed, warning that “often kids with curfew problems tend to do much worse things” such as “sleeping all together. Add to this the fact that there is no scientific data that shows that an hour of difference can change the trend of the epidemic in an incisive way “. Even with regard to major events, “there are now data on experiments that have worked, with buffered or vaccinated people”, Viola recalled, citing the case of “Barcelona: a concert with 5 thousand people”, on the occasion of which, thanks to precautions taken, “there have been no infections. We must trust the scientific instruments that exist: vaccines on the one hand, tampons on the other”.
