However, when Inter won the Scudetto and there were impressive cases of gathering, no peaks were seen, even though that was the time when the English version was spreading, not Delta”, “In a time frame of 4 to 7 days we will see if The infection progresses. And this could happen, given that there were many young people, that is, people from the less vaccinated categories”, explains Abrignani.
“There is a Super Diffuse variant, which first appeared in the UK and then Spain and Portugal and which will definitely come to us as well. In this unpleasant situation, we love to see that where vaccination rates are high, one is safe from severe forms. Instead of one infected person dying in 50, in fact, one in a thousand loses their lives”, the immunologist continues, compared to England, “we expect a little less protection but we don’t all like the British. Leaving and then there are very few cases in comparison to them, that is, an average of one thousand, as against more than 30 thousand in a day. However – he warns – in a month and a half we will reach their same number ”.
