BARI – The easing of the anti Covid restrictions in force from today “will have, as the most likely effect, an extension of the tail of this latest wave, keeping the level of viral circulation high for a longer period. But, if the virus behaves as expected on the basis of previous seasons, circulation should return to a minimum in summer. Therefore, I doubt that today’s behaviors can have a prolonged effect until the autumn ”.
This is what epidemiologist Pier Luigi Lopalco, professor of hygiene at the University of Salento explains to Ruetir Salute. “To predict what will happen in the autumn, we must carefully monitor the situation during the summer, especially with regard to the emergence of new variants globally”, he concludes.
