Virologist Massimo Clemente, director of the Microbiology and Virology Laboratory at San Raffaele Hospital in Milan and professor of the University of Life and Health, said that his country’s authorities had closed the borders after the alleged new strain of the virus had originally arrived in Italy.
The virologist explained that “the alleged English strain of Corona virus, is not English, and it is not a different strain of the virus itself, and until now no one knows why it was presented in this way. It is a disturbing image that I hope we will not carry with us during 2021.”
Clemente added, in statements to the Italian media group “Adnkronos”, Thursday, that “the new strain of the virus that is being talked about these days,” was also identified in a person in Loreto (Ancona – Marche province) who had been subjected to an infection detection swab since December 18. Another, we closed the airports after we hit the virus on our backyard. “
The virologist pointed out that “these lights shining on the mutations of the Coronavirus (SARS-Cove-2) show a greater form, the importance of the challenge posed by the vaccine and herd immunity, and that based on the available evidence, the vaccine is certain of all virus chains as well, including Specifically this alleged English. “
Clemente concluded, “So I hope 2021 brings us less anxiety. We have all fallen into this trap, politicians first, and even some medical colleagues as well, in the last days of 2020.”
