Those who are not vaccinated against the coronavirus “who have no legitimate contraindication to inoculation of the vaccine should be obliged to pay for visits, hospitalizations and drugs in the event of Covid or, at least, to reimburse the damages, calculated as a whole, which can derive from the infections they certainly caused “. It is the ‘alternative’ proposal to the vaccination requirement that comes from the clinical immunologist and allergist Mauro Minelli, coordinator for Southern Italy of the Foundation for Personalized Medicine. “One thing – he explains to Adnkronos Salute – are the protests related to preconceived and sometimes imaginative positions, another are the references to a civic obligation based on evidence behind which stands the specter, anything but imaginative, of a experience to be forgotten “.
“We now know that, if a subject adequately immunoprotected against the new coronavirus comes into contact with the Delta variant, it could undergo very mild clinical effects from the latter which, assuming they occur, are very similar to a tracheitis or a nasopharyngitis – underlines Minelli – We also know that, in these subjects, the mutated virus dies after a few days without any possibility of replicating itself. And therefore, if in the days before dying the virus should have the possibility of ‘jumping’ from the infected and vaccinated subject to a unvaccinated subject passing by, in the latter the virus replicates, expanding rapidly and possibly changing its characteristics even by just enough to generate new and uncontrollable variants “.
“Thus, radically and without conceptual forcing, the clumsy paradigm that would like viral mutations derived from vaccination practice is overturned. In reality we are exactly the opposite”, concludes the immunologist.
