“The certificate of negativity requested to tourists by the president of the Sardinia region Solinas? It says one thing practically unachievable, because in the current state of knowledge and diagnostic availability nothere will never be the possibility of drawing up a certificate of that type“. They are the words pronounced a “Half past eight” (La7) from Massimo Galli, head of the Infectious Diseases department of the Sacco hospital in Milan, who adds: “Perhaps it will only be possible to say that of the people who have positive antibodies and proven negative buffer they can move quite easily, because they have already had the infection and it is unlikely that they will recover it and that they can bring it from one part of Italy to another. If this could be applied rigorously, then perhaps less than 10% of Italians could go to Sardinia“.
The infectious disease specialist explains: “You can certainly say to the Lombard to stay in your region and not to go beyond the borders, but then the block should apply to both incoming and outgoing, that is, we must establish the same for those who come to Lombardy. In the current state of the indications and choices made, the undersigned, who has always been a supporter of caution and who has also been called “a chronic pessimist” from this point of view, ends up believing that such interventions would move little, indeed almost nothing. I remember that the new cases we are seeing in Lombardy concern people who have finally managed to get a swab“.
“But two thirds of the new infections in Italy are all in Lombardy“, Objects the presenter Lilli Gruber.
“They are not new infections – replies Galli – These are cases related to old contagions, that is, to people who have closed the house with the infection. The real new infections fortunately do not think there are any, because, if there were any, other than these numbers. We remember that in Lombardy the official cases are probably a tenth, if not less, than the cases that actually occurred“.
