Boom of infections in Trieste, stop at demonstrations “The increase in new cases from Covid-19 to Trieste is exponential and worries us a lot because it rises very quickly and falls very slowly”. This was stated by the head of the Friuli Venezia Giulia working group on the covid emergency, Fabio Barbone. In the last week “in the province of Trieste there are 801 new cases, this is a doubling of cases compared to the previous week. Unfortunately – he explains – this morning’s data shows that to date the first threshold of 10% of the beds occupied in intensive care has been exceeded. These data make us go back to spring 2021 and autumn 2020 ”. “There are 93 infected people who have participated in no green pass events – explains Barbone – according to the self-declarations of people subjected to swabs who have declared that they have participated in the demonstrations. In some cases they are people who have had to work follow these manifestations “. These are “mostly unvaccinated people who did not use masks or distancing and who for hours were in contact with the people with whom they were elbow to elbow”. And after the boom in coronavirus infections, Trieste is preparing to enact measures and rules to limit demonstrations such as those of the no Green pass that have been staged in recent weeks: Piazza Unità d’Italia, the heart of the city, will be closed to protests until 31 December. “The right to health is a primary good” and “prevails in the balance of interests” over the right to demonstrate, says prefect Valerio Valenti in the press conference broadcast on social media. “The right to expression must not be repressed, but it must be compressed, limited and conditioned in the light of the scientific evidence we have recorded. It is not an easy operation. The trend of the infection is linked to the most recent events, such as parades and demonstrations that have been repeated in recent weeks in Trieste. We will meet as the provincial committee of public order and safety, I am going to sign the provision according to which Piazza Unità d’Italia cannot be the scene of protests until December 31 “, says the prefect, planning the launch of a ordinance of the mayor and adding an appeal: “You are free not to get vaccinated, but let the others live”.
