  1. A new report from the HIH on the diffusion of variants is calling for “great attention” to be paid to the circulation of these more contagious variants.
  2. A third vaccine is being proposed to combat these COVID-19 variants.
  3. In October, there will be a resurgence of viral circulation, different from 2020, and mainly those who have not been vaccinated will end up in intensive care.

“The third dose of the vaccine is in the proposals, but we don’t know when and for whom,” said the General Director of Prevention of the Italy Ministry of Health, Gianni Rezza.

“A third vaccination against COVID-19 is under study, even if we do not yet know when, how, and for whom,” Rezza explained during a press conference on the analysis of the data on COVID-19 regional monitoring.

“In October, there will be a resurgence of viral circulation, different from 2020, and mainly those who have not been vaccinated will end up in intensive care,” stated the Undersecretary for Health, Pierpaolo Sileri. “The risk is that the virus circulates among unvaccinated children and [those] over 60, with the latter at risk of ending up in intensive care. Still dying of coronavirus having a vaccine seems stupid to me. We have a weapon to avoid dying that last year did not have.”
