Covid hospitalizations in Italy increase. Above all, however, the number of beds in resuscitation occupied by those without vaccines is increasing: + 17%. This is what emerges from the report of Fiaso, the Italian Federation of health and hospital companies, with the data relating to the sentinel hospitals of Fiaso recorded on 30 November. “The trend of Covid hospitalizations is gradually growing and accelerating. In one week it increased by 16%”, it highlights. Read also “The data relating to intensive care in which patients grow at a slower rate are partially different – highlights Fiaso -. The hospitalizations in resuscitation show an increase of only 7 units, equal to 9%, and it is only a question of not vaccinated: in intensive care, unvaccinated patients increase by 17% while vaccinated patients decrease by 10%. The decrease in vaccinated in intensive care units, despite the overall increase in hospitalized patients, is a positive sign regarding the protection of the vaccine from severe forms “. A total of 810 patients monitored by the Fiaso study compared to 697 on 23 November. The increase also seems to accelerate compared to the last survey when the growth rate was slightly lower, equal to 11%. Confirming the previous surveys, “the average age is decidedly lower among the unvaccinated: positive patients at Covid who end up in hospital without having received even a dose of the vaccine have an average of 63.4 years unlike the vaccinated who are 74.7 years old – the report continues – The presence of previous diseases also continues to be higher among who has been vaccinated: among the vaccinated patients with comorbidities are 71% while among the unvaccinated 56%. The unvaccinated who are hospitalized, therefore, are on average younger and enjoy a better state of health “.” The hospitalizations of unvaccinated people are growing, those of vaccinated are decreasing: the data of the Fiaso sentinel hospitals relating to intensive care in the last week show that the worst consequences of Covid are essentially the not vaccinated – comments the president Fiaso Giovanni Migliore – We are confident that the enlargement of the audience for the third dose and the wide coverage of the frail will protect vaccinated subjects from severe forms of the disease. However, the vaccination campaign must also be undertaken among children to block the circulation of the virus and to protect the most vulnerable. “” The number of hospitalized Covid patients is growing, but the data show that vaccination and early diagnosis have a positive and the type of patients in need of hospitalization and intensive care and the outcome of the disease – continues Massimo Lombardo, general manager of the Asst Spedali Civili of Brescia – It is important to continue in this direction with a joint effort of all the actors of the system . All prevention tools, including hand hygiene, use of masks and respect for social distancing are still necessary if we want to reduce the impact of the disease in our community “.
