New peak of positivity at Covid-19 in Friuli Venezia Giulia with 3806 new infections detected, 85 of which only among the staff of the regional health system. A ‘monstre’ figure that follows the trend that emerged between 2021 and the beginning of the new year. 14,066 cases have been discovered in the last 7 days, but the lower number of swabs carried out between New Year and Sunday 2 January must also be calculated to this total.
