Covid Italy, regions: “New parameters for measures, stop Rt”


May 7, 2021

New parameters to decide anti Covid measures and restrictions in Italy. This is what the governing regions are asking, with particular reference to the Rt index. “The first thing that must be overcome today, also given the current situation of the country, is that of the Rt index that we are going to evaluate today. incidence is low the risk is that few infections make it splash. If in the middle of the tourist season a region goes from four to eight infections it risks going to Rt 2. If it goes to eight infections that region, with tourists at home, turns red . It would be a disaster “, Massimiliano Fedriga, president of the Conference of Regions and president of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region, told Buongiorno on Sky TG24. Luca Zaia, president of the Veneto region, also expressed his opinion on this point. “I spoke to Minister Speranza and Professor Brusaferro, I think it is logical to review the parameters”, said Zaia. “In Veneto – he highlighted – we have vaccinated half the population, we have monoclonals and we have therapies. The new parameters must introduce principles of automatism. Yes to the Rt index, but above all the Rt with symptoms and the hospital one. risk? With such low parameters we risk saying to tourists this summer ‘do not leave the Municipality’ “.
