“We must expect other pandemics, of viruses originating from animal species and which will spread due to climate change and the violation we are perpetuating against the planet”. This was stated by the president of the Italian drug agency (Aifa) Giorgio Palù, guest of Lilli Gruber at ‘Otto e mezzo’ on La7. “As a doctor and as a researcher – he added -, I am against the suspension of patents, I do not think that by suspending intellectual property we will have an answer. Where do we manufacture vaccines? I believe it is more important to force drug companies, especially those that have received public funds, to a technology transfer to countries that can make vaccines and make them available at affordable prices “. And again,” the parameters that measure the progress of the pandemic are all improving. The curve is going down slowly and gradually – Palù said -, I think it is very likely that we will be able to take off the masks in two months “.
