The Indian variant in England is causing coronavirus infections to rise again, even among those vaccinated with a single dose. The alarm is raised by Roberto Burioni in a post on Twitter: “The situation in the UK is worsening, due to the ‘Indian’ variant that is spreading with particular intensity among the unvaccinated and vaccinated with a single dose (bad idea). Fortunately, the effectiveness of complete vaccination (mRna) seems to be maintained “, writes the professor of the Vita-Salute San Raffaele University in Milan, who also publishes data on the 48% increase since last week in new coronavirus cases in the United Kingdom. . Burioni’s concern is shared by other experts in Italy, starting with Maria Rita Gismondo. “Pay attention to what is happening in England, where infections due to the Indian variant are increasing again”, says to Adnkronos Salute the director of the Laboratory of Clinical Microbiology, Virology and Diagnostic of Bioemergencies of the Sacco Hospital in Milan, according to which this it is proof of the fact that “our future is still uncertain”. If some already envision a herd immunity that can be reached shortly, according to the scientist “with current vaccines we cannot speak of herd immunity”, because this is not the purpose they set out: “We trust in the activity of vaccines – she specifies Gismondo – because thanks to vaccines we will be sure of being able to protect the frail from severe forms of severe Covid-19: this is the goal “, but” the virus will continue to circulate. Obviously, the more you vaccinate, the less it circulates and the less it changes “.
