Italian virologist: 3 doses of vaccine protect more than 90%, it is illogical

The Italian virologist, Roberto Burioni, says that 3 doses of the vaccine against Covid protect more than 90%, a very good news according to him because the protection against serious diseases is very high.

The virologist said in the program "Che tempo che fa" on Rai3 that there is no logical reason for anyone to refuse the vaccine especially now that we are facing the most contagious variant in the world.

"This vaccine is still working fantastically because the protection against serious diseases is very high. There are people who refuse the vaccine, it is an ideological unreasonable choice. There is no rational reason that can push a person to refuse the vaccine.

The Omicron variant has come and we are at the level of one of the most contagious viruses on the face of the earth because a patient infects more than 10 with Omicron, causes the disease in 2/3 days and it is difficult to trace cases.

In this Omicron wave we have reached much higher figures, we are in 3 thousand cases, 6 times more than the previous waves. Cases are 6 times more, intensive care wards are half occupied, most by unvaccinated persons.

The vaccine given in 3 doses is really very protective against the forms that lead people to intensive therapy. "The data of the 'Istituto Superiore di Sanità' show a protection much higher than 90%, which is an extraordinary thing."
