“I believe Veneto will remain in the yellow zone because the Rt figure is decreasing and the low-risk scenario. For us, therefore, the yellow should be confirmed. Even if in the coming weeks we will have to discount the figure of the last 15 days with the opening of schools, for example “. This was underlined today by the president of Veneto Luca Zaia during the press point from the headquarters of the Civil Protection of Marghera. “In Veneto the RT is 0.95 while the incidence is 97 cases per 100 thousand inhabitants. We have 15% coverage of intensive care and non-critical areas, below the thresholds of 30% and 40% respectively”, the Venetian governor explained. “And therefore – added Zaia – we are at low risk”. “In the last 24 hours we have had an incidence of 1.56% of positives on over 40 thousand swabs, while we are about to reach the milestone of 10 million tests carried out since the beginning of the epidemic, Zaia said, explaining that” in in the last 24 hours there were “629 new infections, with 1,228 hospitalizations (-53), 162 in intensive care (-6) and 1,066 in non-critical areas (-47), with 10 new deaths”.
