Time two months and will we be able to remove the mask? This would be the assessment that is being made these days, considering the progress of the covid infection and the advancement of the vaccination campaign. Prime Minister Mario Draghi hinted. This was reiterated by the spokesman of the Technical Scientific Committee Silvio Brusaferro, president of the Higher Institute of Health. The goal, in short, would be that of a summer without the hassle of the mask. Yet citizens do not seem to be in such a hurry to abandon the main tool of personal prevention, a constant presence for everyone in the last year. In fact, seven out of ten Italians will continue to use it for safety. And among the ‘loyal’ to the mask, 55% are under 35. Only one in four Italians say that they will stop using the mask as soon as possible because they feel safe. This is what emerges from an Emg-Different / Adnkronos survey. To the question ‘we are heading towards a summer without masks, how will she behave?’ 65% of the sample replied that they will continue to wear it for safety; only 27% will stop using the mask because they feel safe (8% prefer not to answer). Among those who declare that they will continue to use the mask, 64% men and 66% women. The answer is diversified according to the age groups: among those who do not want to abandon the mask, 55% are under 35, 72% are between 35 and 54, 65% are over 55. The answers according to the geographical area are more balanced: they range from 67% in the Center and in the Islands, to 65% in the South, to 64% in the Northwest, to 63% in the Northeast. , age, region, class of demographic amplitude of the municipalities, was carried out on 24 May 2021 with the method of telematic detection on a panel, on a sample of 1,525 cases (universe: Italian adult population) and has a positive / negative confidence interval 2.3%.
