The National Institute for Infectious Diseases Lazzaro Spallanzani of Rome today released the usual bulletin today on the situation of the COVID-19 pandemic in the structure, confirming in fact what the national data have been bringing out for days now: with the increase in positives also increases the number of people hospitalized for COVID-19.
There are 99 patients hospitalized in the structure, 12 those in need of intensive care. The increase is slight, but the average age has started to rise again, reaching 54 years. Francesco Vaia, Spallanzani medical director, explains:
Of the 12 patients currently in intensive care, 10 are foreigners: three Bengalis, four Peruvians, one Iraqi, one Nigerian and one Ukrainian. Only two, therefore, are Italian. As comorbidities obesity and arterial hypertension prevail.
Without launching alarmism, however, Vaia also today stresses the need not to let our guard down, as is done in other countries, including European ones, with worrying consequences:
This is the time for watchful observance of the rules. In Formia, at the fish market, there were truly irresponsible attitudes and, among other things, on the part of adults. Active surveillance and isolation are the two secrets of success. To avoid a dramatic increase in cases, these two activities must be carried out and people must contribute by taking the test in a spirit of collaboration. In short, it is the spirit of the lockdown that must be resumed. People also need to self-isolate when symptoms are present. At this moment the territorial activity must be strengthened, we must go looking for the virus.

France records more than 13,000 new cases of COVID-19 in 24 hours for the second consecutive day. Blame the many swabs, but also a faster spread of the virus.
