Nothing is excluded. With the increase in infections in Lombardy, the new restrictions are no longer a taboo. A half admission comes from Guido Bertolaso, coordinator of the vaccination campaign of the Region. “Let’s see that day by day, little by little, the numbers are cracking and they are leading us into a situation that could change from white to yellow“. In his opinion, however, Lombardy is one of the few realities that still holds. But – is the question posed by the former director of civil protection – how long will it last?
Eyes on increases in schools. The school system records an increase in infections and quarantines, especially in the 6-13 age group with an increase in the last seven days of 70 percent of positive cases compared to the previous week. Nothing to be surprised about. According to Bertolaso, who spoke during a live Facebook on the Lombardia News Online page, “it is unfortunately inevitable as the cold season approaches, as happened last year, when we were in much worse shape. This year, however, we must face a restart of the spread of the virus, which is still controlled and fortunately slowed down by this huge vaccination campaign “.
In total there are 8 million immunized Lombards, but that may not be enough. And the numbers speak for themselves: in the bulletin of Wednesday 10 November the positivity rate rose to 1 percent and there were over a thousand infections throughout the region, bringing the region back to May 20 last. The fear, therefore, is that the yellow zone is closer than you think.
