The Molise it’s the first one green area Italian in the European map of the Ecdc, the European Center for Disease Control. That is, it is the one with the lowest incidence of Covid cases: less than 25 cases per 100 thousand inhabitants. Even according to the Italian color system, Molise is marked by a reassuring color: it is in white area (less than 50 cases per 100 thousand inhabitants according to the Italian classification).

However, Italy is increasingly orange with only Calabria in red. This week also Basilicata, Tuscany, Puglia and Campania, which were red in the previous map, and which therefore reach the rest of the Peninsula in a lower risk range, become orange, again for the European detection system, already orange, including the islands.

Italy is destined to discolour anyway. They hope in the white zone from Monday 7 June Abruzzo, Liguria, Umbria and Veneto. We remind you that Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Molise and Sardinia are already in the white zone. Tomorrow there will be the usual Friday monitoring and we will know the official colors.

Fun fact: Sweden is not colored on the map because his Public Health Agency suffered a data breach attempt on the SmiNet database, which is used to store infectious disease notifications. “It is still unclear whether unauthorized persons may have accessed sensitive data,” reads a government statement.

The look in Europe

Covid in Europe has affected some groups of migrants the most, which are also the least vaccinated. In particular in Denmark, Norway and Sweden their infection rates were higher than the rest of the population, while in Italy and Spain they were more at risk of hospitalization than the natives. These are some of the data highlighted by the European Center for Disease Control (Ecdc) in its latest document on how to reduce infections and increase vaccinations among migrants. The Ecdc cites an Italian study referring to the period between February 20 and July 19, 2020, which showed that 7.5% of all Covid cases were of non-Italian people, and that this group received a later diagnosis. , as well as was at greater risk of hospitalization and entry into intensive care. Also in Spain a study found that 16.6% of cases were non-Europeans, hospitalized more often in intensive care (16.6%) than Europeans (9.6%). Furthermore, in Great Britain, the Netherlands, France and Sweden, migrants had higher death rates from all causes than the rest of the population and in previous years. More outbreaks have been reported in various camps and reception and detention centers for migrants in Europe. The burden of restrictions and protracted lockdown has had a greater impact on migrants, at greater risk of losing jobs and income and also blocking asylum processes and family reunification. According to the Ecdc, it is essential to involve the different communities of migrants at risk, trying to minimize the risk of contagion and giving them better access to health and vaccination services, especially to those excluded from the health service. To do this, the document concludes, it is necessary to work on individual and structural barriers to vaccination, build trust in migrant communities on the vaccine, contrasting accurate information with disinformation, and providing vaccination points for unregistered migrants.
