Veneto has an Rt index “one step away” from the orange zone, which would entail new more restrictive rules for restaurants, travel, bars, schools for the region now in the yellow zone, with the possibility – among other things – to keep open to lunch and dinner for outdoor restaurants. The verdict will arrive tomorrow with the monitoring data of the control room and with the possible order of the minister Roberto Speranza. “The Veneto currently has an Rt of 0.95, one step away from the orange band” explained the councilor for health, Manuela Lanzarin, at the press point of the Civil Protection of Marghera in place of the governor Luca Zaia, engaged in a video conference with the Regions. “It is a fact that worries us and should worry us,” he added. “On the other hand, the numbers relating to incidence are decidedly better: 97 positive per 100 thousand inhabitants, and hospital employment, equal to 15% for both intensive care and non-critical areas”
