Trieste calls, La Spezia responds. In the contagions. The numbers relating to the trend of the pandemic in the province of La Spezia, which today is the fourth in terms of incidence in all of Italy, are worrying.

Followed by La Spezia (231) and then Forlì-Cesena (210), Messina (179), Padua (157), Udine (156), Ravenna (140) and Pordenone (140).
