RIMINI – In the coming autumn, “there will be waves of rise and fall” with a “non-continuous endemic presence”. In this sense, the new government “will have to be ready and plan to be operational in the event of a worst-case scenario that I hope, hopefully, will not be activated.” The hope is that the next executive will invest in the National Health Service and continue to provide services to meet the needs of the citizen. The profs no vax at school? “We must arrive at a pacification.” To take stock of the Covid situation in Italy is the professor Fabrizio PregliascoHealth Director of the Galeazzi Hospital – Sant’Ambrogio of Milan, who spoke at the Rimini Meeting.
«Our National Health Service is exceptional – he stresses to askanews – it must obviously be updated, it must be reviewed in the light of the lessons we have learned. And we must realize that we have had a lesson, but most Italians have learned it, both in adhering to vaccination and in the approach of attention in terms of general prevention. I believe that the bet for the near future – adds Pregliasco – is that of the continuity of services based on the needs and requirements of citizens. The approach to the elderly, to the chronically ill, with something that is not like now. The hope is that the costs will not increase and the quality of the assistance to all of us will be kept at the best ».
Are you afraid of the risk of a new wave? And how should the new government behave? «We are in a transition phase with all the difficulties of forecasting what will happen. I believe that on the basis of the history of other pandemics and other viruses such as influenza pandemics of the past – the professor replies – we will have waves of ascent and descent, a non-continuous endemic presence, so that unless a perfidious variant arrives – they will be con a trend like a stone in a pond. But we have to plan for the worst or in any case different scenarios and equip ourselves to govern the worst scenario that hopefully and I believe will not be activated. But if we are able to organize progressive interventions with respect to what we have done – he continues – even with less controversy, we will be able to ensure that we can live with this virus. I believe that the bet will be a periodic vaccination, a recommended vaccination that we hope will be carried out above all by fragile subjects, with a periodic vaccination campaign such as the flu, and a more systematic use of the antiviral we have today for the therapy of people who can however they become ill and, if frail, they may still die. Even in these days we have devastating double-digit values, we must reduce it as much as possible ».
Regarding the teachers and school staff no vax readmitted to school since September, Pregliasco is clear: «We must reach a pacification. Those who have been in solidarity – he replies – have done the good of our community and of our Italy. Thanks to this huge majority of people we are able to guarantee a school, hopefully in presence as much as possible. We evaluate in progressive terms what must be implemented according to what this rising wave will be in the next autumn winter ».
