The Covid hospitalization curve slows down again. The total number of patients in hospitals, both in ordinary wards and in intensive care units, fell by 13.7% in one week. This is what emerges from the report of 16 August by Fiaso, the Italian Federation of health and hospital companies, on sentinel hospitals belonging to its network. Therefore, the reduction in hospitalized patients continues for the second week in a row: in the survey of 9 August, a net decrease of 20% was recorded, we read in the Fiaso report. In particular, the number of patients in ordinary Covid wards decreased more, -13.8%, compared to intensive care which reduced the number of beds occupied by 10.8%. However, with regard to Covid resuscitation small numbers – underlines Fiaso – It should be emphasized that those hospitalized in resuscitation all have a high average age and for more than 90% of cases are affected by other pathologies. Furthermore, the age difference between vaccinated (average age 71 years) and unvaccinated (67 years) remains between patients in intensive care and, among them, those hospitalized ‘for Covid’, who have developed a respiratory pathology typical of the Covid, 40% are no vax. In the last week, Covid hospitalizations in pediatric hospitals and pediatric wards of hospitals belonging to the sentinel network of the Italian Federation of Healthcare and Hospitals (Fiaso) have been reduced by 29%. The 0-4 year old class is always the most affected (66.6% of hospitalized) and infants under 6 months are 37% of the total, the report said.
