Covid today Italy, the Northeast is entering the full fourth wave of Covid -19. Friuli Venezia Giulia exceeds both threshold parameters for intensive care and ordinary hospitalizations and the autonomous province of Bolzano is at risk, with high incidence values ​​of infections and the lowest share (64.3%) of people who have completed the cycle vaccinal. This is what emerges from the 75th episode of the Instant Report by Altems, the High School of Economics and Management of Health Systems of the Catholic University, on Covid-19 in Italy. Read also “It is now clear – underlines Americo Cicchetti, director of Altems – that it will be a Christmas in which under the tree we will find not only gifts, but also the concern of the fourth wave of the epidemic that is making its way in Italy from North-East area of ​​the country. Our Altems indices developed in recent months to monitor the stress of the National Health Service and the epidemiological alert had already shown a slight, but constant worsening for some weeks, due in part to a very worrying European situation. “.” The only way at the moment – says the director of Altems – is the one launched yesterday by the Government, in concert with the Regions, to apply a Super green pass to prevent any lockdowns, safeguard the provision of care and recovery of suspended services during the first three waves, as well as avoiding further deaths “. “The Super green pass strategy – says Cicchetti – must be accompanied by a response from the population towards the third dose” of the anti Covid vaccine, “as it was in the May-July period in which we exceeded 500 thousand daily doses”. “However, – he remarks – at the moment the total administrations (third dose per 100 thousand inhabitants) in relation to the resident population over the age of 12 in the last week show a great heterogeneity in the country, with Tuscany having administered the largest number of third doses ( 1,677.88 / 100 thousand) while Valle d’Aosta is the region in which this administration reports the lowest value (404.20 / 100 thousand) “.
