“The Delta variant is like Rambo armed to the teeth.” Professor Ilaria Capua, director of the UF One Health Center of the University of Florida, thus photographs the picture of the coronavirus emergency. “The Delta variant has taken over everywhere, which is very different from the original virus. That was the Neanderthal man who evolved and, among the many people who are now, there are also Rambos armed to the teeth, very We are in a different scenario, but luckily we have vaccines and are reaching very significant vaccination rates, “he tells Di Martedì. “Compared to September 2020 we are now fighting with a different virus. A year ago there was an increase in infections because there was no vaccine. Now we see more severe forms in unvaccinated people, but this virus armed up to teeth can also make vaccinated people sick. It is something we could have expected, viruses evolve: this must not undermine our confidence in vaccines. Without vaccines, we would have had many more deaths and we will see that the numbers of October, November and December will be lower than in 2020, “he says. “If I am not vaccinated, I eliminate a million viral particles. If I am vaccinated, I eliminate 1000 or 10,000. If I am vaccinated and I become positive, I infect far fewer people than an unvaccinated person,” he explains. “People do not realize the costs associated with intensive care. Treatment intervenes when you are sick, we must prevent people from going to the hospital: the staff is exhausted, we have no money for trainees and to create a turnover of doctors, “he adds.
