CATANIA – The numbers announce hope. In Catania, the reduction of infections at Covid 19 seems to have begun. The latest bulletin speaks of 41 new cases. A breath of fresh air for the province of Etna which until last week recorded numbers that far exceeded one hundred. Is the virus giving respite? It is still early to say. And incorrect behavior could nullify the sacrifices made so far.
Serious positives in the ER
Unfortunately, however, we continue to get sick. In the emergency room of the Policlinico di Catania yesterday in a single day four people with breathing difficulties were hospitalized. Positive patients were hospitalized at San Marco in Catania, where for weeks there has been a steady decline in the number of Covid beds occupied.
The vaccination campaign continues
The vaccination, meanwhile, goes on, at a very fast pace. The AstraZeneca Open Doors regional initiative for anyone aged 18 and over who wants to voluntarily undergo English serum ends today. The Hubs of San Giuseppe La Rena in Catania, Acireale and Caltagirone have joined in Catania.
The vaccine remains the only weapon to defeat the terrible virus. Carmelo Iacobello, the director of Infectious Diseases of Cannizzaro of Catania, was clear: “Unfortunately we continue to hospitalize especially over 80s who are not vaccinated. And they are serious ”.
