(ANSA) – TRIESTE, 01 NOV – “The increase in new cases in Trieste is exponential”. This was stated by the head of the regional health task force, Fabio Barbone, at a press conference with the leaders of the Region. “You go up very quickly and go down very slowly”. In the last week in the “province of Trieste, 801 new cases have been registered, double the previous week”. This “has led to an infection rate of 350 cases per 100 thousand inhabitants in the last 7 days, just under triple that of the rest of the region. The incidence figure takes us back to spring 2021 and autumn 2020”. Now, “the variable time is fundamental”.
“The trend in the last 4 weeks has been a progressive increase in incidence rates but in the last week in particular there has been a further worsening of the situation”, explained Barbone. A fact “of particular concern” and which is not explained only by the fact that “in Fvg there are more tampons than elsewhere”. The data recorded this morning, for example, “shows today that the first threshold of intensive care has been exceeded, that is 10% of the beds occupied: we are at 18 in Fvg; however, still far from exceeding the threshold that determines the change of color” .
As regards vaccination coverage – “the most effective intervention” – the “Fvg is a few points lower than the national figure and that of the province of Trieste is 5 points lower than the Fvg. The age groups in which the youngest is highlighted vaccination coverage are between 40 and 70 years.
Until the end of the year, no demonstrations in Piazza Unità d’Italia and sanctions for those who demonstrate without respecting the distance and the obligation to wear a mask. This was announced by the prefect of Trieste, Valerio Valenti, and one of the measures that the public order committee is preparing to launch also to contain the contagion that is marked in the Region and in the city.
