Leather District (Pisa), 3 August 2021 – La variant Delta sink the bite. And the Empoli hospital, reference for the whole Leather District, is forced to reopen the Covid department. 96% of the new hospitalized for Covid in the 12-79 age group are unvaccinated people. 100% of the people admitted to intensive care are unvaccinated people. The latest bulletin of the ASL Toscana Centro leaves little room for interpretation. “The hospitalizations of unvaccinated people continue every day – he says Alessio Spinelli, president of the Empoli Health Society Valdarno Valdelsa, – and therefore also the Empoli hospital is forced to reopen the Covid ward. We never wanted it to happen again but with all these people not getting vaccinated it was inevitable to get to this point. ”The central issue is vaccines.

“We have quickly opened three vaccination hubs in our area – continues Spinelli – precisely to allow everyone to protect themselves as soon as possible but in the face of the stubbornness of those who do not want to take note of reality, there is little to do. from the hospitals on admissions are very clear – Spinelli specifies -: almost all of the hospitalized people are not vaccinated. I wonder what we still have to wait for everyone to run to get vaccinated. Do we want to wait to fill up the hospitals again and have us close at home? “. In the territory of the 15 municipalities of the Empolese Valdarno Valdelsa Health Society there are still almost 60,000 people of age who are completely ‘uncovered’ and of these 45,000 are over 30 years old.

“I and my fellow mayors – concludes Spinelli – are wondering what these people are waiting for to get the vaccine. Without protection, the risk of contracting the disease in a serious form is much higher. I don’t say it, the statistics that come from the hospitals. I don’t know what numbers no-wax and various deniers read, the numbers of hospitals are clear “. The infection started walking again. Quickly too. On Sunday 13 new cases were registered in the District, 7 of which only in San Miniato. Yesterday, however, there were 9 new cases of which 8 in San Miniato and 1 in Santa Croce Sull’Arno.
