“The permanence of Sardinia in the orange zone, despite the current epidemiological framework being compatible with the lowest risk band, is the confirmation of the inadequacy of the current classification system”. Thus the president of the region, Christian Solinas, in a note. “Our Island, with a RT of 0.74, records the lowest contagion index in Italy and the pressure in hospitals continues to drop. The monitoring of the Istituto Superiore di Sanità, validated by the control room, certifies for Sardinia a lower risk condition than expected for the application of the restrictions of the orange zone. A paradoxical situation – he continues – that we have not failed to strongly emphasize to the Government. Unfortunately the response from Rome does not reward the sacrifices Sardinians, nor the commitment of all the forces in the field constantly working on the Covid front “. Also for the health councilor, Mario Nieddu, “Sardinia is penalized by mechanisms whose limits have already been known for some time and today our region has had yet another confirmation. Considering the current general situation and in the light of a vaccination campaign that continues to grow, neither Sardinia nor the whole country can remain chained to a system that chases the virus and is therefore unable to respond to the need to contain the pandemic, with distorting results that are no longer sustainable. classification can no longer be postponed, especially in view of the summer season “.
