But this hypothesis would only come true if cases and hospitalizations continue to rise
(ANSA) – CAGLIARI, 30 JUL – With the old parameters Sardinia would have already ended up in the yellow zone, but the risk is not completely averted. With 94.5 cases per 100 thousand inhabitants, the island and a hospitalization rate that rises to over 5% in intensive care and 4% in the medical area, is among the regions that could change color by the summer. An assessment for now premature given that the transition would take place if the employment rate of intensive care were to exceed 10% and that in the non-critical area 15%, but the signal also comes from Europe. The two major islands of Italy, in fact, have been included among the red regions “at risk”, in the updated maps published at the ECDC, the European center for disease prevention and control.
The daily infections remain above 300 and observed special there are above all the Metropolitan City of Cagliari, that of Oristano and Southern Sardinia. Overall, there are 32 municipalities on the island that exceed the critical threshold of 250 cases per 100 thousand inhabitants, so much so that several mayors have issued ordinances requiring the mandatory use of masks even outdoors. In Siurgus Donigala (South Sardinia) the curfew returned from 24 to 5 the next morning, while in Maracalagonis (Metropolitan City of Cagliari) there is an obligation to keep a distance of 10 meters on the beach between one umbrella and another. Another negative but now less important data for the color change is the punctual Rt index: the highest is recorded in Sardinia with 2.44.
In terms of vaccinations, Sardinia, according to the Region, reaches one million and 800 thousand doses of vaccines administered: one million first doses, 800 thousand second doses. “An important milestone for our region – underlines the governor Christian Solinas -. In recent days we have pushed on the accelerator and we are close to our goal of administering at least the first doses to all those who want to undergo the vaccine. This millionth dose makes us it is good to hope that soon we will have reached the majority of Sardinian citizens “. (HANDLE).
