New Covid infections, hospitalizations in the medical area and in intensive care and even deaths are growing in Italy. The independent monitoring of the Gibme Foundation reveals in the week 24-30 November, compared to the previous one, “an increase in new cases (86.412 against 69.060) and an increase in deaths (498 against 437). The currently positive cases also grow (194.270 against 154.510). ), people in home isolation (188,360 versus 149,353), hospitalizations with symptoms (5,227 versus 4,597) and intensive care (683 versus 560) “. “For six consecutive weeks – says Nino Cartabellotta, president of the Gimbe Foundation – new weekly cases continue to increase nationally (+ 22%) with a 7-day moving average that has more than quintupled: from 2,456 on 15 October to 12,345 on 30 November”. The increased viral circulation is documented by the increase in both the positive-person ratio (from 3.6% to 17.1%), and the positive-molecular buffer ratio (from 2.4% to 7.2%) and positive-rapid antigenic swabs (from 0.07% to 0.38%). “In this phase of uncertainty – concludes Cartabellotta – all interventions must be strengthened, following the principle of maximum precaution. In particular, increase sequencing activities sharing the results in the Gisaid database, enhance case tracking and carefully monitor areas with rapidly increasing incidence. For the population, already known behaviors remain fundamental: getting vaccinated and undergoing the third dose when indicated – with top priority for the elderly and frail, use the mask indoors, possibly Ffp2 if crowded, respect social distancing and ventilate the premises frequently “. STILL 6.8 MILLION UNVACCINATED PEOPLE “After two weeks of stabilization at around 127 thousand, in the last week the number of new vaccinates has risen to 168,377 (+ 31.5%). However, of the 6.8 million people unvaccinated, two groups of concern are growing too slowly: on the one hand 2.57 million over 50s at high risk of serious illness and hospitalization, on the other 1.16 million in the 12-19 age group that negatively affect school safety “, underlines the report. As for the vaccines administered. “Compared to the targets defined by the commissioner for the period 1-12 December, the target for weekdays (400-450 thousand doses from Monday to Friday and 350 thousand on Saturdays) appears realistic – highlights the report – considering that from 24 November, daily weekday administrations are stable over 300 thousand. Less likely to reach 300 thousand administrations on holidays: during the last month, in fact, on Sundays the administrations never reached 100 thousand, except on 28 November when administrations were just over 150 thousand “.
