Coronavirus updates on Thursday 14 October
Italy at risk of blocking tomorrow against the obligation of a Green pass. There is alarm in particular for that of the ports announced in Trieste and also in almost all the others by the spokesman for the ports of the Friulian capital Puzzer. Free swabs? The only opening take away the Green pass, he says. Some port companies, starting from Genoa, are ready to pay the swabs to the workers to avoid the blockade. Another front is that of road hauliers. For Minister Speranza we are at a crossroads, above all thanks to the vaccination campaign. In these hours there are many first doses in progress. Meanwhile, the latest bulletin relating to Wednesday 13 October brings the data of the pandemic in Italy to 2,772 new cases and 37 deaths. Here is the map of the contagion in the world.
10.37 am – Gimbe, made 390 thousand third doses, only 5% covered
As of October 12, 2021, they were administered 389,764 third doses of Covid-19 vaccines, with a coverage rate of 5.1%, compared to a vaccinable audience of 7.6 million people, according to the categories provided for by the ministerial circular of 27 September (which includes immuno-compromised, over 80, guests and staff of the RSA , health workers over 60 or vulnerable to severe Covid). what emerges from the new monitoring of the Gimbe Foundation, which underlines considerable regional differences: ranging from 18.3% in Molise to 0% in Valle D’Aosta.
10.28 – Landini, tomorrow decree with 13 weeks cig Covid
In the decree that tomorrow will go to CDM there will be the refinancing of another 13 weeks of Covid cig. Thus the general secretary of the CGIL, Maurizio Landini, at the end of the meeting at Palazzo Chigi.
10.12 – Gimbe, the descent of cases and hospitalizations continues. First vaccine doses still down, -23% in 7 days
The decline in Italy of new cases of Covid contagion (-13.5%), hospitalizations in the medical area (-10.2%) and intensive care (-14.5%) continues. And deaths are also decreasing (-14.5%). what emerges from the monitoring of Gimbe Foundation
referred to the week 6-12 October which, compared to the previous one, recorded a decrease in new cases of contagion (18,209 vs 21,060) and in the number of deaths (266 vs 311). As of 13 October – the report continues – 77.5% of the population received at least one dose of vaccine (+402.786 compared to the previous week) and 73.3% completed the vaccination cycle (+534.900 compared to the previous week). In the last week the number of administrations has fallen again (1,040,938), with a 7-day moving average of almost 152 thousand administrations per day. For the second consecutive week, the number of new vaccinates falls: from 493 thousand to 378 thousand (-23.2%). The “gentle push” of the Green pass – he comments Nino Cartabellotta, president of the Gimbe Foundation – has therefore had modest effectiveness in countering vaccination hesitation. Considering that the green certification is issued 15 days after the first dose and given the imminent commencement of the obligation of the Green pass for workers, a clear rise in the number of new vaccinates should have been visible by the end of September, but this was not the case.
9.10 am – WHO: On origin not excluded laboratory hypothesis. Withhold third doses to vaccinate the world fairly
All the hypotheses on the origins of the pandemic must continue to be examined, from the hypothesis of transmission from animals to that of the escape from the laboratory, which has not yet been categorically excluded. To support it, in an interview published on Corriere della Sera
, the WHO director general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. The WHO then asked to put the booster programs, that is the third dose, on hold at least until the end of the year. Instead of vaccinating those who are already vaccinated, we need to vaccinate those at the highest risk, he points out.
8.39 am – Minister Mass: Free swabs for fragile students, for the others we will see
University students have the right to study. Among other things, the unvaccinated are few, around 10%. For example, for the frail who cannot get vaccinated, I would give the swab for free, for the others I don’t know: but we must proceed gradually, and avoid asymmetries. To affirm it Maria Cristina Messa, minister of the University and Research in an interview with Corriere della Sera
. Let’s first see how the return of workers is going. I would not like there to be any further controversy, he adds.
8.27 am – Green Pass: 433 violations detected by Nas, two doctors reported for false certificates
Since the entry into force of the legislation, the Nas carabinieri have inspected over 8 thousand activities and businesses, disputing 433 violations of the Green pass obligation, of which 236 to the owners of commercial activities and the provision of services subject to the obligation of Covid certification, such as restaurants, bars, gyms, betting halls and means of transport, held responsible for failure to verify the Green pass. In the context of the checks, two doctors were also denounced, held responsible for having drawn up false medical certificates used later by their patients to request the issuance of the green certification.
