Stuttgart by Matteo Bassetti against the “catastrophists” who, immediately after the reopening of April 26, had launched alarms on the probable increase in infections from Covid-19. “Fortunately, the catastrophists have disappeared from the radar, it seems like years have passed but only four weeks have passed since I took insults from some colleagues, who said that I am always on television and I do not go to the ward. I, on the other hand, live there in the ward. and for this reason I said some things. I saw before others what was happening at the end of April, when the burden of work in the Covid wards was reduced “, the director of the Infectious Diseases Clinic of the San Martino di Genova and member of the Covid-19 crisis unit of Liguria. “I didn’t make a fortune teller – Bassetti specified – but I saw the hospitalizations in my ward, in my Region and in Italy and what happened with the vaccinations of the over 70s and 80s. It was widely foreseeable that what we are experiencing would happen. “.” I see that others have changed their attitude but do not admit that they were wrong – remarks Bassetti, referring perhaps to the announcement of the virologist Massimo Galli who said he was in the press – They just disappeared saying that they no longer speak. Well, this does not is the best way to communicate: when I made a mistake in my forecasts I admitted it, there is nothing wrong, sometimes recognizing one’s mistakes shows intelligence. What I would like – hopes the infectious disease specialist – is that Health, where there has always been a ‘single color’ from the point of view of scientific ideas, other authoritative voices should be taken into consideration “.
