“Eight regions and autonomous provinces have a punctual Rt greater than one: Basilicata, Campania, Liguria, Puglia, Sardinia, Sicily, Tuscany, Valle d’Aosta. Among these, two Regions (Sardinia and Valle d’Aosta) have a transmissibility compatible with a type 3 scenario “. This is highlighted by the draft monitoring of the weekly report Iss-Ministry of Health on the Covid epidemic in Italy in the week of 29 March -4 April.
“There is a decrease in the general level of risk, with four Regions, Liguria, Puglia, Tuscany and Valle d’Aosta, which have a high level of risk”, he underlines. While “Veneto and the autonomous province of Bolzano have a low risk classification”. There are fifteen autonomous regions / provinces that have “a moderate risk classification”: Abruzzo, Basilicata, Calabria, Campania, Emilia Romagna, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Lazio, Lombardy, Marche, Molise, Piedmont, Pa Trento, Sardinia, Sicily, Umbria. Of these, four are classified as “with high probability of progression to high risk in the coming weeks”: Lombardy, Pa Trento, Sardinia, Sicily.
“For the third consecutive week the incidence drops slowly, passing to 210.8 per 100,000 inhabitants (29 March-4 April) from 232.74 per 100,000 inhabitants (22-28 March), thus remaining high and still far from the levels (50 per 100,000) which would allow the complete restoration of the identification of cases and the tracing of their contacts throughout the national territory “emerges from the draft of the report.
ADMISSIONS AND INTENSIVE CARE
As regards hospitalizations and intensive care, “the number of Regions and autonomous provinces that have an employment rate in intensive care and in medical areas above the critical threshold remains high, 15 Regions compared to 14 in the previous week. ICU nationwide is above the critical threshold (41%) “.
“RESPECT THE MEASURES”
“The strong overload of hospital services, the incidence still too high and the widespread diffusion of some viral variants with greater transmissibility require the application of every useful measure to contain the infection” is the indication. “It is essential that the population avoids all opportunities for contact with people outside their own home that are not strictly necessary”, he recommends. “We remind you that it is mandatory to adopt rigorous individual behaviors and to respect the sanitary measures in place relating to the spacing and correct use of the masks. We reiterate the need to comply with the measures recommended by the health authorities including the quarantine measures of close contacts of ascertained cases of isolation of the cases themselves “.
