The director of microbiology and virology of the University of Padova on the pass for travels: “If it is based on the quick tampon it is a crazy boiata””Every time the same mistakes. Professor Andrea crisanti, director of microbiology and virology of the University of Padua, drafts on the whole line the “repertures reasoned from 26 April”, announced by the president dragons last Friday. The problem, according to crisons, lies in that adjective: “reborn”.
The risk can be calculated, evaluated or interpreted, if anything”. And adds: “If this is a calculated risk, how many cases and how many deaths have been taken into account? If they did this calculation it would be better to tell us, because we would know what Italy risks».
A apparently lexical knot but that, according to the professor of Padua, brings with it strong repercussions on the actual recovery of Italy from the pandemic of coronavirus. Professor crisanti, what are the data necessary to be able to speak of “reason reasoned”, as defined by the president dragons? “The risk can be calculated, evaluated or interpreted, not “reborn”.
Must be calculated in terms of probability and consequences. Translated: what probability is the transmission of the virus broken down? In December, she argued that they were selling “false hopes, intercepting people’s desire to get rid of the nightmare”.
“They are all measures taken without any evaluation. Then, or are we irresponsible to health or are the British irresponsible to the economy. For the reopening of the schools is assumed a presence 100% for everyone, with outdoor lessons, screening, entrances.
The decision to keep the schools open or closed is done without any given hand. There is no information that justifies neither one nor the other choice.”What do you think of the shift passes? “It depends on how they are set up and which parameters are taken into account.
If it is based on the quick tampon is a crazy boiata. If it is based on vaccination there is an ethical problem, because there are people vaccinated for priority and others are not. The option on cured covids, which therefore have antibodies, already has some extra foundation.
Professor, however, pragmatically, after more than a year of hiccups, a road to dare from this situation in safety will be there as well, no? First of all, we must maintain current measures and proceed with tambur with mass vaccinations. To this one must unite the sequencing of the positives, to understand if they are emerging variants, and implement the tracking.
However, rapid buffers must be eliminated, which are a terrible confusion.” “In eight months we could be able to bow. However, investments must be made in the right direction: vaccines, tracking and sequence of possible variants.
Only this is the recipe to get out”.
