Rome, June 4, 2021 – “Things are better” in Italy on the Covid front “thanks to the vaccination campaign and the measures we have had in recent months”, now it is necessary “to continue on a gradual path, because it is right to reopen but step step by step »since« a step too long could make us pay a price ». This was stated by the Minister of Health, Roberto Speranza, when asked on the sidelines of the G7 in Oxford on the easing of the rules on tables in restaurants. «We must always distinguish the open from the closed – he added – because indoors there are many more risks. We are on the right path, we must insist on this path ».

There are 892 patients hospitalized in intensive care for Covid in Italy. With a decline of 41 compared to yesterday in the daily balance between income and expenses. The daily admissions, according to data from the Ministry of Health, were 24 (yesterday they were 33). The hospitalized with symptoms in the ordinary wards are 5,717, down by 141 units compared to yesterday (when the drop was 334).
The point about vaccines

In detail, 27,733,972 doses of Pfizer / BioNTech serum were distributed, 7,426,880 of those of Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca), 3,735,557 of those of Moderna and 1,226,250 of those of Johnson & Johnson.
Italy in white from 21 June
L’Italy will be tinged with White, with the sole exception of Val d’Aosta, starting June 21st. Always, of course, that the decline in the infection (which continues steadily with a -27% of cases in the last week) does not reverse its course. An important role in all this is obviously played by the striding advance of the vaccination campaign.
All regions under 50 cases per week per 100,000 inhabitants
In fact, with yesterday’s data (June 2), all Italian regions except Val d’Aosta have dropped to an incidence below the risk threshold of 50 cases per week per one hundred thousand inhabitants. By law, three consecutive sub-threshold monitors are required to allow a region to gain the scenario with fewer restrictions, without curfew. For this reason, thanks to last Friday’s monitoring, they went to the white area of Sardinia, Friuli Venezia Giulia and Molise. While the next report from the control room expected on Friday 4 June will certify the white zone the following Monday for Abruzzo, Liguria, Veneto and Umbria. There are seven more days left in Lazio, Lombardy, Piedmont, Puglia, Emilia Romagna and the Province of Trento. But Friday’s monitoring will trigger the countdown for seven other regions, which will enter their first report with incidence below 50, thanks to tomorrow’s data (those assessed by the Control Room): Sicily (today’s weekly incidence of 50 cases for one hundred thousand), Marche (42), Tuscany (42), Province of Bolzano (49), Calabria (48), Basilicata (44) and Campania (49). After two more monitors below the threshold they will go blank, hopefully, on Monday 21 June, reaching the others.
Only the Val d’Aosta remains out, which still has an incidence of 61 per hundred thousand: in all likelihood it will end up below 50 in the monitoring of 11 June, to be declared a white zone on Monday 28 June, after two more reports.
Meanwhile, yesterday, June 2, they were 2897 the new cases of Covid in Italy in the previous 24 hours with 62 deaths, according to data released by the Ministry of Health. The vaccination campaign Go on at a fast pace throughout Italy.

We have excellent results on the over 80s, good on the over 70s. and only satisfactory for the over 60s, and it is very likely that from the beginning of next week also Aifa will give the green light for the vaccine to adolescents.
