Covid today Italy, Brusaferro: “Increase in cases of every age, increase in hospitalizations”


Jan 14, 2022

Covid cases in Italy are growing in all ages. “The 20-29 age group is the one that has the highest number of cases on the rise, followed by 10-19 and 30-39. All the others follow. If we then look at the younger age groups, we see that the curve is growing in all of them “. To explain it today is Silvio Brusaferro, president of the Higher Institute of Health (Iss), in a video in which he comments on the main data of Covid monitoring. The 30-day projections on hospitalizations “show a significantly present probability of occupancy of medical area beds in all regions”. Which will be “a little more contained as far as intensive care is concerned”. “In recent weeks the increase in the incidence” of covid-19 in Italy “has been very, very significant. And in the last week it reached 1,988 cases in 7 days per 100 thousand inhabitants. The Rt transmissibility index let’s see how it is differentiated with respect to symptomatic cases and hospitalized cases, but in any case always above the threshold “, therefore above quota 1. Covid hospitalizations in the under 19s are” limited “in numbers,” but growing “. “We see confirmation of the fact that hospitalizations in younger ages are limited, but are on the rise – he explained – even if in the gray area” of the graph, which concerns the last week and still has unstable data, “they seem to contract or decrease. “.
