Ricciardi: “Quarantine remains, but we study another way” – Football


“The quarantine cannot be shortened, but we are working on another way to save the championship.” Walter Ricciardi, member of the WHO executive board, adviser to Minister Speranza for Coronavirus, spoke live on Radio Punto Nuovo, also with regard to the relocation of the championship: ” One thing is scientific data and other political decisions. Such strong decisions then bring national unity into play, they are pragmatic solutions, people are a little freer. Lombardy had a higher number of cases, therefore from a scientific point of view, the proposal makes sense. Obviously, all safety measures should be respected in every region “.
“The problem with football is that there are many spectators – adds Ricciardi – one must be able to guarantee all the measures. 14-day protocol? Shortening is not possible. The period of departure cannot be less, but an alternative route. you can find it, we are working on it. There are cases in which the incubation lasts even longer than 14 days. As things get better, you can start thinking again about releasing the guard for the public.
So I believe possible to a reduced number of spectators. I don’t know the timing, but I believe that in almost all of Italy we can start making these speeches “.
