COVID deaths lower where flu-vaccine-rate high - study

Monzino study focuses on over-65s

(ANSA) - ROME, SEP 28 - The flu vaccine seems to help combat the coronavirus, according to a study by Milan's Centro Cardiologico Monzino and published in the Vaccines journal.
    The study said that the regions with higher flu vaccine rates among over-65s have fewer contagions, fewer hospitalized COVID patients, fewer patients in intensive care and fewer deaths during the lockdown.
    It estimated that an 1% increase in flu-vaccine coverage among over-65s could have avoided 78,560 contagions. (ANSA).
