“The death toll, which is still very bitter, follows the tail of the current wave that is dying out. First the new hospitalizations were reduced, then the people in intensive care, as it should have been, now the deaths”. Massimo Galli, director of the Institute of Infectious Diseases of the Sacco hospital in Milan, State University, explains this to Adnkronos Health, commenting on the decline in deaths from Covid-19, yesterday the lowest since October 14. “There was a combined effect of the vaccine and the ability of Italians to protect themselves. The latter is a fundamental fact because if people had not been careful, we would have had worse effects. Instead we had results beyond the more optimistic expectations “, concludes Galli.
