Schillaci: '5-day quarantine', but De Luca: 'Let's keep the mask on'


With the minister's proposal for the asymptomatic, fear of the increase in infections is growing. The governor of Campania, De Luca, to the students of the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples: "Put the mask on or you will have Christmas in bed" (ANSA)

"We are working to ensure that

asymptomatic people can return to their activities after five days.

We will shortly present a bill on this".

This is the intention of the

Minister of Health, Orazio Schillaci

, expressed today in Campobasso to participate in the inauguration of the

academic year of the University of Molise

, answering a question from journalists on a possible change of the rules on Covid.

However, the opinion of the governor of


Vincenzo De Luca is contrary:

"You have to wear the mask otherwise Christmas you will do it in bed" he said to the students of the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples.

Noticing the crowded great hall and observing the students and even the adults, the governor urged everyone to protect themselves from Covid: "Don't joke," he said, to applause.

"Don't be casual, be optimistic: please, when there are moments of assembly, wear it. - added De Luca - I only counted 6 people, 6 'pilgrims' who wore it this morning. Yet there are some worrying signs that are arriving from the Far East, from China, what happens in China after a month and a half comes to us. Let's hope we don't run into some variant that could create problems".

Instead, the head teacher of

the Ugo Marsia di Carini high school, in the Palermo area, Simonetta Calafiore

signed a circular with which she imposes the

use of the mask in the classroom

for staff and pupils at risk of developing severe forms of the disease.

Furthermore, the circular asks those who show symptoms to carry out rapid swabs and repeat them after five days.

Another precaution, as was already the case during the pandemic, will be taken by the school, such as the periodic sanitization of the premises and frequent air changes.

The recommendations on hand washing and hygiene with a certain frequency and on social distancing also return.

The school will allow staff and students to stay only in the absence of fever symptoms.

According to Professor

Luca Gammaitoni,

experimental physicist at

the University of Perugia,

who analyzes the trend of the pandemic with mathematical models, in Umbria "over the past fifteen days"

hospitalizations in the Covid area have been growing

without an "obvious" rise in the number of new daily infections, the curve of which "seems to remain flat. Something doesn't add up" he writes on his Facebook profile.

Professor Gammaitoni explains that in previous waves the increase in the curve of new daily infections "has always preceded" that of hospitalizations.

"Most likely - he explains - the curve of new daily infections is underestimated due to the co-presence of the

In many cases it is conceivable that the sick patient does not take the test confusing one pathology with another, or does not report it once it has been ascertained.

In short, there would be a rise but it would not be highlighted by the data.

Should we worry?

No. At least until the number of cases on the hospitalization curve in the Covid area (123 as of November 29 - ed) rises significantly above 200 cases, which would mean a new wave of considerable size.

The next few days will tell us how it goes.

For now - concludes Professor Gammaitoni - the advice is always the same: get vaccinated and wear a mask in closed and crowded places".
