Misinformation on covid creates enormous damage to Italy. Doctors who don’t get vaccinated are irresponsible. Professor Alberto Zangrillo, director of the Anesthesia and Intensive Care Department of the Irccs San Raffaele hospital in Milan, answers the questions of L’aria che tira su La7. Third dose, vaccination obligation, green pass: the debate revolves around 3 themes. “People who do not get vaccinated feel themselves young and fit. Then there are those who are outside the booking system. And then there is misinformation: everyone talks and mingles with the institution, which therefore does not enjoy trust. The few balanced voices are covered by chatter “, says Zangrillo. “Italy has behaved in an extraordinary way, we have reached a rate of vaccinations that places us as a world leader. It is bad that there is a misinformation that continues to create anxiety, make the news and fill newspapers. We have been overwhelmed. from the Afghan affair, but now that the Paralympics are over, the most important newspaper opens with 9 pages on covid “, he affirms. Vaccination obligation: yes or no? “I do not want to be used for what I will say. I believe that there is enormous room for a dutiful persuasive effort that must be made by those who are able to convey the truth. Those who do not vaccinate have an extraordinarily higher risk of developing more severe forms that can lead to intensive care “.” But – he observes – there are Italian doctors, in contact with more fragile people, who do not get vaccinated: this is extremely serious, denotes ignorance and a sense of irresponsibility.

If we set the threshold of 90%, which we will never reach, we might as well insert the obligation. At this moment we must lead people to listen to the people who have the tools. I understand that space must be given to the journalist on duty, but there are 4-5 voices accredited to speak: I am thinking of the CTS, the scientists and doctors who lived the story in the hospital “.” We easily made the transition from zero to 60% of vaccinated, it is much more difficult to go from 60% to 90%. People who are prey to disinformation are missing “, he reiterates. Chapter three dose: “We have to take care of fragile and immunosuppressed subjects: there are thousands of people waiting for an organ transplant. Immunosuppressed subjects must be given the third dose. Then, for the rest, we will see”. the topic of no vax threats to doctors has come into the spotlight. “I am a friend of those who are put on the index. For 20 years my children have been mocked because the father is the doctor of a person who is not liked by everyone. We are a sick country, dominated by social envy. Even a poor Christ. who exposes the watch received from his grandfather is massacred. I am threatened and mocked but I do not speak about it: it is the known phenomenon of the fan … “.
