Delta variant, the epidemiologist Ciccozzi explains: “The vaccine protects us 98% from Covid-19 in severe form, but does not avoid the possibility of contagion”

Massimo Ciccozzi, director of the Medical Statistics and Epidemiology Unit of the Bio-medical Campus of Rome, he explains: “The Delta variant is not homogeneously spread throughout the territory, there are outbreaks that for now can be controlled. Vaccines protect us 98% from serious disease, on infection the effectiveness drops. We know that the virus changes continuously, so the more we give it the chance to infect the more it could change becoming unassailable by the vaccines we have now. Green pass? On the vaccine I believe in free will, but we must inform to make people understand the advantages of vaccination. Sars Cov 2 will be among us until it will become a human virus, it will adapt more and more and it will become like a flu to be vaccinated for every year. Third dose? At the moment we do not have enough data, “he told Radio Cusano Campus.
