Covid Lazio, the plan to avoid the yellow zone: open day and more beds

Christmas must be dyed white. The imperative is to escape the spectrum of the yellow zone in the coming weeks. Cases are increasing, and are almost three times the number of a month ago, but the Region has a plan: increase in Covid beds on the one hand, initiatives aimed at encouraging vaccinations on the other, which join the squeeze on outdoor masks decided by the Municipality of Rome. The aim is to “cool down” the employment rates in hospitals.

If intensive therapies until a few days ago were beyond the limit that determines the entry in yellow of 10%, now – according to the daily monitoring of Agenas – they have fallen again to 9%. But they are floating numbers. Last Saturday the total number of Covid patients in intensive care was 89, on Monday they jumped to 97, yesterday they were 91. It only takes a few fewer patients (compared to a greater number of beds available) to change the percentages just enough to make you breathe a sigh of relief to the Region.

Councilor Alessio D’Amato is optimistic. “58% of citizens fear that Lazio will return to the yellow zone” he said yesterday, citing the Confcommercio report on Christmas consumption in Rome, “we must give messages of tranquility and avoid generating anxiety”. And D’Amato does so by entrusting the daily bulletin with a very clear forecast: “To date, our technicians do not believe it probable that between now and Christmas there will be a change of band. Let’s work together for a safe Christmas, respecting the rules and booking immediately the recall “. There is a fact – the only one really improving – that reassures the commissioner. This is the Rt value, which has been falling since last week. Lazio has reached 1.01, this means that the epidemic is always expanding, but in a less disruptive way. To give an example, on 11 November the RT was at 1.3, because the cases, compared to the previous week, had seen a 50% increase. This time, however, only + 13% was recorded in the last 7 days. “The goal is to stabilize the RT and bring it back to below 1 – continues the commissioner -. This in perspective may allow us not to have changes in the range”.

But RT alone is not enough. Or rather, it is no longer enough, since it is no longer taken into consideration as a parameter for decreeing the change of color zone. What matters, as is known, are the hospitalization rates, which travel at least 7-10 days later than infections. And the infections, albeit with a slower growth, are on the rise. And there are many. Certainly many more than a month ago: the week from 31 October to 6 November the total was 4004. In the last 7 days there were 10,102, almost triple. The real difference will make the hospitalizations, which so far are constantly growing. And to counter them there is no other weapon than prevention, with the administration of monoclonal antibodies quickly from the onset of positivity and with the rush to the third dose. Today a series of open initiatives are planned, for a total of 5 thousand administrations, in accredited clinics, from Cristo Re to the Luigi Di Liegro Polyclinic. All over 18s can access by booking on the Salute Lazio regional portal.
