” On the one hand, we see a very contagious variant and our problem is to stop it before it reaches us, given that in Italy it is still practically not there. The British have not done anything wrong, but probably against the Indian you need to have done two doses of vaccine, with one you are not protected enough. After all, they made many first administrations ”. Sergio Abrignani, immunologist at the University of Milan and member of the CTS, says this in an interview with ‘La Repubblica’. ” The fact that the cases are generally not serious gives us hope that the vaccinated will not get sick in severe form – he adds – Even if the Indian variant were to arrive here, therefore, it probably would not put pressure on our health service ” ‘. ” We know that against the variants we know, the first dose already gives a coverage between 60 and 70 percent – he continues – For the Indian the data seems lower. We must understand that we have been living with a bad virus for some time, we are adapting to what he does. The important thing now is to get vaccinated as quickly as possible, hoping to avoid the birth of worse variants of the Indian ”.
