Silvestro Scotti, national secretary of the Federation of general practitioners (Fimmg), underlines to beraking latest news Salute that in the offices of family doctors “we are seeing many family epidemics: the child leaves, then all the others follow. This is a worrying situation. And our invitation to patients is to get vaccinated“.
This is because it is an epidemic that easily spreads “in one population that did not develop antibodies last year, due to the low circulation of the virus linked to anti Covid measures “, continues Scotti who notes that this year, however, the flu risks helping Covid.” If you become infected with the flu virus, which can leave you for a long time symptoms such as cough, and then Covid contracts, sneezing and coughing risk spreading the pandemic coronavirus more “, adds.
