“The situation in Italy is different than in the US and the UK. We have not yet vaccinated the youngest” and “for this reason I remain cautious about reducing the curfew: I understand that we will move towards a shift in the timetable, but we must not eliminate it. The virus is circulating and it is still early “. Massimo Andreoni, scientific director of the Italian Society of Infectious and Tropical Diseases (Simit) and head of Infectious Diseases at the Tor Vergata Polyclinic in Rome, underlines this to Adnkronos Health. Today the control room of the Government will decide on the change of pace on the curfew, with possible shifting at 11pm or midnight. “The curfew is valid for everyone, but it is above all addressed to the younger segment of the population – remembers Andreoni – It serves to avoid night gatherings due to nightlife which, precisely in that band, risk creating outbreaks. The epidemiological situation is evolving positively – observes the ‘expert – and for this very reason we must proceed with care and caution, in order not to ruin what has been done up to now with great sacrifices “.
