Covid Italy Bulletin 11 April
Hope: I defend the reopening of schools
“Today there are 13 million vaccine administrations done and for 3 weeks the curve has seen a first sign of bending. With great frankness I say that we are aware that there is an element of risk, with the increase in movements but the government has done so. a choice that I strongly defend. Thanks to the measures adopted in March and in these two weeks we have accumulated a small treasure and we have decided, two months after the end of the school year, to invest it in the school as lintel of the Italian company that has paid a very high price “.
Reopen gradually, do not rush the stages
“We can now try very carefully and with great caution to understand how we manage a phase in which the measures produce the effects and vaccination rises. At the intersection of these two elements with great attention and great foresight we can plan weeks in which I hope there may be fewer limitations but we have to do it with great caution because crossing the stages can produce effects. And the Sardinia story proves exactly this. The English variant is very fast “.
Gb, on Monday pubs and gyms reopen. Study: “Beginning of herd immunity”
Shortage of vaccines and contracts
“It was decided to buy vaccines together in Europe and buying them together is the right idea. We cannot do everything against everyone in Europe. Of course we are paying a price, it is a truth we have to deal with but we cannot do. the free-for-all. In the next few weeks there will be other races and it will be necessary to correct these errors with an eye “.
AstraZeneca works, communication problem
“I would do it, it’s a safe vaccine“, Speranza quoted Prime Minister Draghi, the head of civil protection Curcio and the general Commissioner for the Covid emergency, Figliuolo, all vaccinated with Anglo-Swedish serum. “On AstraZeneca there was a communication and line change problem but it is an important weapon we have. Now European countries have decided to use it with a recommendation for people over 60 years old following some very rare events, especially on women. But AstraZeneca is a vaccine that works, that saves lives, as shown by Great Britain where it has been used in a very large part. The vaccine is the weapon to get out of the pandemic. himself and to the community “. And Speranza added: “Yes. The second dose with AstraZeneca”, for those who did the first with this vaccine, and if there was no adverse reaction “.
Travel to Europe, we work on green passes
“We are working on the ‘green pass’, a kind of green certificate that will allow European countries to move more easily. I am also working in the G7 with the other health ministers to try to extend this initiative”. But for the moment it is better not to travel: “Unfortunately at this stage our message to citizens is to avoid travel abroad and to avoid travel as much as possible. But we have never wanted to completely interrupt international reciprocal relations that we continue to consider fundamental “.
