He discusses the opinion of the CTS on the gradual reopening of discos and dance halls in the white area and with the Green pass, guaranteeing a presence, including employees, equal to 35% of the maximum capacity indoors and 50% outdoors. “After waiting a year and a half to reopen with a capacity of 35% it seems like a mockery. Much more could be done” underlines to Adnkronos Health Matteo Bassetti, director of the Clinic of Infectious Diseases of the San Martino Polyclinic in Genoa. “Honestly, with all the measures that can be taken today with the vaccination coverage that is advancing and the possibility of having the Green pass, I do not see the logic of the CTS decision – observes Bassetti – Because for cinemas there is a capacity at 80% and are they always closed structures? I don’t understand, maybe why you don’t wear a mask in dance clubs? I hope the CTS decision is a first step to reach 100% quickly. We owe this to the sector and also to give a signal of normality to the country “. “More could have been done on discos,” says clinical immunologist and allergist Mauro Minelli, coordinator for Southern Italy of the Foundation for Personalized Medicine. “I do not think that at this stage a limited or selected entrance can prove to be less insidious than a 100% or 80% capacity as happens in other public events or shows that have also been allowed for months” he adds to Adnkronos Salute. “This is why reopening the dance clubs after more than a year could become a consequence of the vaccination process that now affects the vast majority of young Italians – says Minelli -. With so many subjects who spontaneously underwent the anti-Covid vaccine, it is possible well to hope. Indeed, the reopening of the discos could even become an incentive to induce all the children to take that step that took us out of the emergency, as we intended it until a few months ago “. The virologist Fabrizio Pregliasco, professor at the University of Milan, observes: “We want to reach a normalization. It is clear that there is no management manual, we are in a good phase and therefore we trust the citizens knowing” but “that winter, the flu and the rest are looming. ” “I know that 35% is not considered so much – he tells Adnkronos Salute – but I believe that in some way it is a first step. Let’s go on to subsequent steps. It’s a progression”. The one-third limit, explains the expert, “is a probabilistic aspect, it reduces the risk of contagion a little, probably not very much, but at the same time it gives a signal of availability. I see this, a progression that has its own meaning: the fewer people there are, the less crowded “and less risk.
