COVID: Infections date back to 6 Regions. We tell you which ones and what is happening
COVID-19 CASES are increasing in 6 RegionsThere is no alarm, but attention still needs to be paid given the international scenario and the worrying cases of United Kingdom and Russia where there is a small absolute of infections. In Italy, we can say that the situation is very calm on a general level, but if we go into detail, we notice an increase in coronavirus cases in 6 Regions.
Let’s talk, as also reported by the newspaper Corriere della Sera, from Abruzzo, Campania, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Piedmont, Lazio and Lombardy. In the map published by the Civil Protection, the curve leads to not considering the emergency closed despite the good vaccination coverage of the population, which reached 85.97% in the first dose (46.43 million people) and 81.99% at complete cycle (44.28 million).
In the last week there is a slight rise in the number of Covid cases. “The situation is under control “, he has declared Silvio Brusaferror, number one of the Higher Institute of Health. Because the key figure is the positivity rate compared to swabs, which remained almost unchanged, albeit with a slight increase from 0.6 to 0.8% in the past seven days. The number of tests, on the other hand, has skyrocketed due to the entry into force of the obligation to Green Pass in the workplace that has forced many unvaccinated to undergo antigenic or molecular tests.
The index of transmissibility of the Delta variant is between 40 and 60% higher than last year’s strain when the epidemiological curve was spinning out of control leading to closures and curfews. 23 October 2020 we had over 12,000 cases a day and by early November the figure would then have exceeded 40,000 infections. Therefore the vaccine effect is evident. We are managing to avoid it but the government’s goal is to reach 90% immunized in early November. Many hope to succeed with great leaps of optimism.
