“If hospitalizations continue to grow at this rate, we risk finding ourselves again with hospitals full of Covid patients and we cannot afford it. The facilities are already at risk of collapse, the emergency rooms are clogged, we have millions of services to recover and the lists of services. ‘waiting are interminable. The health staff is exhausted and insufficient, further reduced by the more than deserved holidays and by the infections that gallop among health workers: in the last 30 days there are 15,971 cases registered by the Higher Institute of Health, compared to 4,684 6 months ago. We understand the tiredness of the citizens and their desire to put the emergency behind them, but the virus has not disappeared and we must continue to respect the prevention measures: indoor masks, distancing and hand hygiene “. This is the alarm-appeal launched by Guido Quici, president of the Cimo-Fesmed Federation medical union, to which Anpo-Ascoti, Cimo, Cimop and Fesmed adhere, commenting on the latest monitoring of the Higher Institute of Health-Ministry of Health. “The numbers themselves are not alarming at the moment – Quici points out in a note – but it is the growth trend that worries us, because it risks putting even more in the organization of hospitals and further postponing assistance to non-patients.

We see too many people who underestimate the danger of contagion, not only for their own health, but above all for those who are most at risk of a serious illness and therefore hospitalization “. “The contacts of the positives – he recommends – must continue to undergo the swab and respect the isolation in case of positivity, even if asymptomatic. We live the summer in safety and without selfishness: there are millions of patients who have been abandoned in recent years and who now have the right to be followed by doctors. Let’s start thinking about them again “.
