The infectologist and molecular biologist, Alberto Kornblihtt, was appointed in the last hours as a member of the French Academy of Sciences. In this case, he spoke of the advancement of the Omicron variant and analyzed the vaccination campaign against the coronavirus, where he targeted the libertarians and asked to install the inoculation obligatory, even if “it would be a problem”.
“The pandemic brought out the best and the worst in our society, I am concerned about this defense of individual freedom over collective well-being,” remarked Kornblihtt, in a talk gestated on the Second Dosis program, broadcast on Radio 10. He added that “getting vaccinated is an act of solidarity that contributes to the fading of the pandemic.”
Kornblihtt prolonged his analysis by highlighting the good work of the inoculation system: “If there had not been a vaccination plan like the one we had, with this high degree of transmission that there was, today we would have more infected and more deaths,” said who also spoke of that there is “something postmodern about people who do not want to be vaccinated and there are politicians who flaunt it as if it were a value.”
“I understand how difficult a compulsory vaccination would be, but if you ask me, it would have to be installed,” remarked the biologist. It should be noted that with the health pass that is requested in closed sectors, for the realization of recreational, social and religious activities, the rate of vaccination increased and even provinces such as Córdoba, transcended it to pharmacies.
It should be noted that Alberto Kornblihtt made the news a few hours ago, for being appointed as a new member of the French Academy of Sciences and regarding this designation, he remarked that «it is an achievement of mine, but at the same time it is an achievement of all my disciples, because they made known all our works and that is an advance for science ».
