The choice of the weekly communication of Covid data “is not justified, unless we think that Italians are a suggestible population to which we must keep things hidden”. This is how Massimo Galli, former director of the infectious diseases department of the Sacco hospital in Milan, sees it. “In what terms is it justified? I do not think, but I would not be wrong, that this is a measure shared with many of the main European countries and in fact there are international agencies that continue to provide information on a daily basis. Perhaps we want to reassure the part. of the population who prefer to leave the problem behind and forget about it? It does not seem to me a very effective message. And it also takes away more precise information that I do not think is harmful to anyone, if not to those who want to tread the hand for reasons that they are not scientific and that they make a bit of a flag of this for a cause that seems neither right nor correct to me “. “Everything also happens – he points out to Adnkronos Health – at a time when, just two days ago, the European Medicines Agency Ema, not myself, reports and foresees the diffusion” in the EU “of a variant”, BQ .1, particularly difficult to contain, perhaps able to escape vaccines in a valid way and with a peak in November. The EMA says this, the minister says that we are moving on to weekly reporting “, he observes, commenting on Orazio Schillaci’s announcement on the suspension of the daily publication of the bulletin.” Maybe it doesn’t happen – reflects Galli – but it could be faced with the need to go back his footsteps, having remedied only a bad figure “.
