PALERMO – Boom of infections, the suspension of hospitalizations in some wards of the Cervello hospital in Palermo, one of the main ones in western Sicily, is triggered. READ THE DATA OF THE INFECTIONS
Given the “growing number of infections and hospitalizations”, the health director Walter Messina has signed a provision with which hospitalization in the internal medicine, gastroenterology, chronic intestinal inflammatory diseases department is suspended.
The suspension is necessary to allow “as soon as possible the conversion of the wards into Covid beds”.
“Having acknowledged the persistence of the increase in the pandemic curve – reads the hospital note – the persons in charge are invited to provide for the relative discharges or transfers of patients admitted to other hospitals in the metropolitan area”.
Just today the president of the Nello Musumeci Region launched an appeal to the Prefects to increase checks and face the increase in infections and hospitalizations.
