Lockdown risk with 3.5 million over 50 not vaccinated. The alarm was raised by Nino Cartabellotta, president of the Gimbe Foundation, who spoke to the microphones of the broadcast ‘Italy has awakened’ on Radio Cusano Campus. “We have saved the summer tourist season, we can safely say this, thanks to the vaccination campaign. What worries most now is the emergence of new variants and also the potential drop in vaccination coverage – he says – Another concern is that related to 3.5 million over 50s not yet vaccinated. This can translate into a higher number of hospitalizations that can lead to new closures. This is an element that must pass in public communication, the reasoning on the vaccination obligation goes in this direction ” .
“The coverage due to the vaccination campaign allows the policy to risk more with reopening. It is clear that however a whole series of flaws, such as that of the unvaccinated over 50s, must be covered – warns the president of Gimbe – ‘arrival of the autumn season, the likely decline in vaccination coverage over time, the hypothesis of new variants more resistant to the vaccine, but it is likely that there will no longer be closures like those we have seen in the past ”.
