“Second wave In the USA? Here we haven’t gotten out of the first wave yet and we’re really in trouble. In Italy, where the curve has gone down, a second wave is possible. It is certainly a likely scenario, especially when the climate changes the cold will come in winter“. They are the words of Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases (Grandchildren) and member of the White House task force, in an interview with Luca Telese and David Parenzo in the transmission “On air” (La7).
And he adds: “In winter the situation could get complicated. Inevitably the flu season may overlap and we could witness a resurgence of cases. With the cold, especially in the Northern Italy, there will be the possibility, but not the inevitability, of a second wave. The return of the virus is a concrete possibility“.
Regarding the different positions in the Italian scientific world on the covid, the immunologist says: “Here in the USA very few believe that the virus is contracting. The virus is absolutely not disappearing. Maybe the US was in the same Italian situation and had your own spread of the virus. We would be very happy to find you in your scenario. Italy and Europe in general have been virtuous. Maybe we had acted like you, Italy has behaved very virtuously. It is definitely a model, it was an excellence what about the reaction to the virus – he continues – Responsibility of politicians in the covid situation in the USA? No, that’s not quite the case. It is not the politicians’ fault. The problem is that US citizenship has a close relationship with public health measures. Many have ignored social distancing and have not worn the mask. There was also no uniformity of reaction and therefore we have a leopard spot situation. The fault, therefore, is not of the politicians, but of the configuration of the country. People don’t like to listen to what health authorities have to do and it’s a problem. “
About the covid vaccine, Fauci explains: “We don’t know exactly when it will arrive. We must verify its safety and effectiveness. Then it must be distributed worldwide. We are moderately optimistic: a vaccine may arrive by the end of the year and the beginning of 2021. But there is no guarantee. We are, however, optimistic on the basis of the early analyzes of the previous phases “.
