“It seems to me the umpteenth lie, the umpteenth nonsense, which we are discussing until today because they have to tell me what is the scientific data according to which if you are at the table in 6 or 8, you become more infected than if you 4. Where is this written? I would like to see a scientific work that says that at the table of 4 they do not get infected while at the table of 6 they are infected “. So Matteo Bassetti, director of the Infectious Diseases Clinic of the San Martino hospital in Genoa, on the constraint of 4 diners at the same table in the restaurant, at the center of the technical table scheduled for today at Palazzo Chigi. “If there are the necessary distances at the table and all the measures are followed – says Bassetti at Adnkronos Salute – there is no problem, even indoors. This is like the mask at the table with a straw. from the whole world “. “We must try to have common sense – underlines the infectious disease specialist – perhaps avoiding the tables of fifty people, but also understanding that those who go to the restaurant first take an aperitif and then stay together. Then maybe they do the after dinner together. So they are hypocritical measures. If two of us go to dinner with 4 friends, what is the problem? I don’t understand why last year yes and this year no. I have now stopped understanding the decisions of the CTS, I have tried to interpret the meaning but I can’t to make up for it “, he concludes.
