Florence, April 2, 2021 – The Covid contagion in Tuscany: yesterday 1,631 new cases in the 24 hours mortify the hope of a turnaround in the short term and reinforce the need to maintain red zone waiting to be able to send the vaccinations. With this full-wave Coronavirus result – which adds up to 32 other Covid deaths in a single day, another peak – other references worsen. The number of hospitalized patients increases, they are 24 more (total, 1849, and the CGIL reports criticality of access to the hospitals in Florence), intensive care does not decrease (265), the number of patients treated at home also increases, almost 300 more. It’s at Meadow the worst data in Italy is recorded in proportion to every 100 thousand inhabitants (HERE THE ARTICLE).

Positive note, the percentage increase of the healed (+ 0.8%) which equalizes the same value as the increase of the new positives. The batch of vaccines is urgent and decisive in Tuscany, where delays weigh too much, also due to the arrival of doses in too insufficient quantities. In this regard, with the aim of calibrating an anti-pandemic industrial production plan in the supply chain, there was a first meeting between the Tuscany Region and pharmaceutical companies. The companies responded to an appeal from President Giani. The goal was to create a vaccine in Tuscany plus other anti-pandemic products (monoclonal antibodies, diagnostic systems, immunoglobulins). Also present were the councilors Simone Bezzini (health) and Leonardo Marras (production activities) and managers of Menarini, Kedrion, Eli Lilly, Molteni Farmaceutici, Diesse Diagnostica, Aboca, Esaote, Abiogen, Toscana Life Sciences Foundation and Gsk Vaccines, who with the plant in Rosia (Siena) has the operational potential to build the vaccine supply chain in Italy on which the Government is focusing. “Such a significant response to my appeal gives me hope in the possibility of giving substance to a strategic and operational planning”, said Giani who wants to bring the Tuscan plan to the attention of the Government and to the table of Minister Giorgetti.

The second identifies resources to be recognized both for the RSAs and for the higher costs incurred relating to prevention and security measures, both for the minor entries registered due to the anti-Covid measures, for a total of 20 million euros.
