The rule of 4 people per table in restaurants or bars if you are not living together, both in the yellow zone and in the white zone, outdoors and indoors, without distinction, continues to be discussed. And on the day of the technical table to talk about the limit, virologists and experts expressed themselves on the subject. Pregliasco: “Constraint only indoors, beware of virus tail shots” For Fabrizio Pregliasco, professor at the State University of Milan, “it could be a good mediation to say in 4 only indoors. As a step to be modified gradually, as in a strategy of war “. “It is clear that there is no management manual – underlines Pregliasco at Adnkronos Salute – but the general principle is to reduce the frequency of contacts and in this phase” of the Covid epidemic “we must be cautious. Let’s go carefully – warns – because, as we see from England, there can be some blows from the virus for many reasons: new variants and still a vaccine situation that must run and that we must run in the best possible conditions in order to have a good medium-term result , that is for the summer “. Gismondo: “Ridiculous limit” “Absolutely ridiculous” is instead how the microbiologist Maria Rita Gismondo liquidates the debate. “It seems to me more of a ridiculous political debate than a theme based on a scientific reality. And I find it equally ridiculous that there should be a meeting with the technicians” on the subject, the director of the Laboratory of Clinical Microbiology, Virology and bioemergency diagnostics of the Sacco hospital in Milan. “We have known for a long time and have been saying what the distance terms are necessary to prevent infection”, recalls the expert. “Today, that more than 4 people cannot sit at the table in a public place when they can do so quietly in private homes – he observes – I think it is absolutely ridiculous. Rather”, Gismondo invites “to empower people to avoid attending a free all ‘”in this new phase of the fight against the pandemic coronavirus. Viola: “Excess of caution” “Four people at the table? With 20% of Italians vaccinated and the low circulation of the virus now, it seems to me an excess of caution. If 6 vaccinated people want to go to dinner, what a problem Is there? It would be better to say that at a table there must be a maximum of 4 unvaccinated people. Come on, a little faith in these vaccines! “. Thus, via social media, the immunologist of the University of Padua Antonella Viola intervenes in the debate on the limit of diners in restaurants reopened even indoors thanks to the relaxation of anti-Covid restrictions.
