“The English situation must worry us because we must monitor and ensure that there are no Indian variant clusters, we need careful surveillance that with the current Italian numbers (1.000-1.500 positive) we can sequence all the new infections and check if there is is the variant “. He highlights it at Adnkronos Salute Matteo Bassetti, director of the Infectious Diseases Clinic of the San Martino hospital in Genoa.


“In Italy we chose a slightly different vaccination strategy from the United Kingdom, where they shortened the period between first and second dose. What is happening in the United Kingdom, with the increase in cases linked to the Indian variant, is linked on the one hand to the the fact that most of the population is vaccinated with a single dose and then that some have postponed the second dose a lot. This variant is, however, remember it covered by the vaccines we are using “, he added.
