But Renato Costa, Covid commissioner of the metropolitan city of Palermo, reassures: “It is the natural evolution of intensive care – he says to PalermoToday -. Patients admitted to sub-intensive care need a couple of days of intensive care. But I repeat: this is the natural evolution of hospitalization. There is nothing to worry about. The latest data says that there have been just six more entrances in all of Sicily. We can rest assured “.
Costa then mentions the situation of Covid on the island and future horizons. “Forecasts? Impossible to unbalance, between now and September I would be satisfied with obtaining a good percentage of immunization. The goal is to drastically reduce the circulation of Covid. But between reducing the circulation of the virus and a total interruption of the virus there passes. A new wave in the fall? I don’t believe it. I trust people’s behavior, and I hope for vaccines and mass membership. “
