The gaffe of the Lombard councilor and the lesson of the German chancellor – Ansa /CorriereTv
The Councilor for Welfare of the Lombardy Region Giulio Gallera became the protagonist of a gaffe while he tried to explain the Rt contagion index by communicating the trend of coronavirus cases in the usual update from the headquarters of the Region. “The Rt index at 0.51 means that to infect me, two people must be infected at the same time. This means that it is not so simple to find two infected people at the same time to infect me, “said Gallera. Before him, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, always during a press conference, had explained the same concept. His clear and understandable lesson had conquered social networks. Many had shared Merkel’s statements, which had become trending topics on Twitter even outside Germany.
