Covid, Gimbe and the third dose alarm

by admin

The fourth wave does not stop, on the contrary. The infections for the first time since last May have exceeded the threshold of 10 thousand cases in 24 hours. Friuli Venezia-Giulia and Alto Adige move towards the yellow zone and the situation begins to get heavy in the non-critical area of ​​hospitals also in Campania (9%), Sicily (10%), Lombardy and Valle d’Aosta (8%) while Calabria has 12% of beds occupied in intensive care. In seven provinces there are over 150 cases per 100,000 inhabitants: Trieste, Bolzano, Gorizia, La Spezia, Forlì-Cesena, Padua and Vicenza. Italy breaks up, even if the increase in cases is not homogeneous on a national scale, between those who are at risk of restrictions and those who resist. Starting with the hospitals, which are preparing for another complicated winter.

Therefore, a government intervention is likely with the extension to the third dose of the vaccine obligation for healthcare professionals and the reduction of the duration of validity of the Green Pass: the validity of the green certificate could go from the current 12 months to 9 months, even to encourage third doses. “Personally, I believe that the trend of infections must push us to stricter measures”: the Minister of Culture Dario Franceschini thus answered a question on the possibility of differentiated green passes. Personal opinion “because the decisions are up to the government and parliament”, he specified, but “I think it is right to differentiate – he added – between those who have the Green Pass because they are vaccinated. On the other hand, we must take some urgent measures”.

But the emergency, as the Gimbe report notes, may soon concern the vaccination campaign on third doses. “With only 127 thousand new vaccinated in the last week and supplies to the stake for 5 weeks, the bulk of the work now has to be concentrated on third doses,” said President Nino Cartabellotta. By the end of the year, “15.83 million should be administered, on average over 350 thousand doses per day between now and 31 December”. Not only that: to reduce the risk of restrictive measures it is “necessary to reduce the validity of the green pass to 6 months” and “introduce the vaccination obligation at least for public workers”. While “a super Green Pass without buffers only risks fueling social tensions”.

Resuscitators, intensive 1 month without strict measures
“Currently there is an alarming situation for the employment of intensive care units in FVG, beyond the threshold of 10%, and the Autonomous Province of Bolzano. The situation is also worrying in Veneto. In general, if the green pass rule is not strictly applied and third doses are not encouraged, we could reach a dramatic situation in about a month and a half across the country “, says the president of the Association of hospital resuscitators. , Alessandro Vergallo. “We ask that the duration of the green pass be 6 months, given the decline in the effectiveness of the vaccine after this period”.

The point about the third doses: “The stocks are worrying, today less than 50% of those to be administered”
The new independent monitoring reports that 3,269,468 third doses were administered yesterday, of which 534,029 additional doses and 2,735,439 booster doses, with a 7-day moving average of nearly 120,000 administrations.

Considering that to date 2.74 million booster doses and 291 thousand additional doses have already been administered to Over 60s, 15.83 million third doses should be administered by 31 December, on average over 350 thousand administrations per day. “In addition to the participation of the population in the administration of third doses – comments Nino Cartabellotta, president of Gimbe – and the organizational and communicative challenges that the Regions are called to face, the stocks of mRNA vaccines, now equal to less than 50%, are worrying. of the doses to be administered by the end of the year, together with the fact that the plan for the next supplies remains unknown, by now at the stake for 5 weeks ».

Covid, infections and tampons: what is not working in Italy

Ema: the third dose restores the original protection of the vaccine. Prior to vulnerable and elderly their antibodies decay first

“We are monitoring all the studies and we see that the protection of the vaccine,” decreases over time. “But this doesn’t happen in an instant. The third dose restores that protection that we see at the completion of the second dose. ” Marco Cavaleri of Ema said this in a press conference, explaining that the booster should be given first “to those who are most vulnerable and to the elderly since the decay of antibodies is faster than in younger adults”. And now the data will emerge that will corroborate “the fact that the third dose should be administered to the majority of the population.”

Sileri’s words: «Lockdown for unvaccinated? It is not the strategy to be implemented now, but we evaluate it “
Pierpaolo Sileri, Undersecretary for Health, spoke to the microphones of the broadcast “Italy has awakened” on Radio Cusano Campus, dictating the line on the Austrian and German model, reiterating what had already been declared in the previous days: «Lockdown for non-vaccinated? It is not the strategy to be implemented with today’s numbers, it can be evaluated in case of passage in the orange zone ». Adding that there is “some area of ​​the country that risks ending up in the yellow zone, but this does not include major restrictions, so at the moment there is no reason to make restrictions for the unvaccinated. It must be kept on the table, like so many other options, but the situation is under control ».

The main objective remains the same: to focus on convincing No Vax to take the first dose – who did not – but also the third dose: “Science today shows us that vaccines work and work very well, but that this immunity tends to decrease over time, which is also what happens for many other vaccines. The vaccine therefore deserves a booster, with the additional dose you recall the immune system to the war against the coronavirus, then having a stronger and probably even more lasting immunity, we will find out how long it will be over the next few months. With this virus we are all students, science has found answers very quickly and so the war against the coronavirus proceeds. It is not a way to say that the vaccine does not work, the regions of Italy that have more vaccinations have less intensive care units employed “.

Son: “It’s not over but we will get out of it, great lesson for all of us from young people”
“Italy protected 87% of the population with at least one dose of vaccine, so we are talking about over 46 million and 900 thousand people aged 12 and over, we did 3.4 million third doses and yesterday we reached the record of almost 150 thousand third doses, Italy in the first places in Europe for the vaccination campaign was an example of collective reaction ». This was underlined by the commissioner for the covid emergency, General Francesco Paolo Figliuolo, in a video link with the national training exhibition ‘Orientamenti’ underway in Genoa. “Surely we must think that the pandemic will not disappear suddenly: it will move towards what scientists call the endemic phase. And we will still have to be careful. But I am confident that we will get out of it ». “The thing I am most proud of”, concluded the extraordinary commissioner, “is that young people have achieved a vaccination rate that is close to that of the older classes, with a connection between grandparents and grandchildren: young people are giving everyone we, those of the middle age, a great lesson: they trust science ».
