La Spezia, 16 September 2020 – The virus does not stop. Not even the measures introduced in recent days by the institutions seem to stop the advance of Covid-19. In fact, 91 people have tested positive on the swab examination over the last twenty-four hours, a sign that the coronavirus continues to circulate. The vast majority of positives, as in recent days, would be associated with the cluster identified by Asl5 in Alisa in the Umbertino district. A figure, that of the last twenty-four hours, which has made the number of people positive for the virus in the province soar to 844, while 840 – also this figure on the rise – are people subjected to active surveillance. The only positive figure of the day is that relating to hospitalizations, because the pressure on hospitals is eased: 79 people are hospitalized, four less than yesterday given that in the last twenty-four hours there have been twelve discharges compared to eight hospitalizations. Eight also people who are in intensive care in the resuscitation ward at San Bartolomeo, while no deaths were recorded.

A delicate situation, on which the regional governor Giovanni Toti also spoke yesterday. “The screening initiated by Asl5 has brought out 91 other positive people, which means that the circulation of the virus is still very strong – explains the president of the Liguria Region -, and that the cluster we deal with continues to produce its effects for days, which has led us to take measures of containment and social distancing. The pressure of the La Spezia hospitals remains high, but the good news is that there are four fewer people hospitalized. An invitation to be careful, because circulation remains high “. Very high attention, therefore, in the hope that the virus will loosen its grip. A pandemic that is reappearing strongly and is returning to undermine those who have long been on the front line to combat it.

In the last few days, two general practitioners have been infected by the virus: they are a sixty-year-old doctor and a forty-year-old doctor, both operating in the city, whose conditions do not raise particular concerns. Not only. The effects of the virus also reverberate on services with greater personal ‘contact’. Thus, since yesterday, the C agency of the Carispezia-Credit Agricole branch in Migliarina has closed: an act due following the discovery of two positivity among the employees of the branch. The quarantine for employees who came into contact with colleagues, with ASL5 which is rebuilding the epidemiological chain, was immediately triggered. “The protocols were activated immediately, to protect employees and users – explains Armando Cozzani, provincial secretary of Fisac ​​CGIL – with the intervention of the ASL and the sanitation of the premises. , so much so as to be the leader of the agreement between ABI and the trade unions for the introduction of security measures and for the protocols that regulate the activity. According to the information we have gathered, the agency should reopen on Thursday (tomorrow, ed.) ” .

Meanwhile, the ‘La Piazza Comune’ movement yesterday launched a petition on the change.org platform to ask the municipal administration of La Spezia and the president of the Region Giovanni Toti for scientific evidence and clarity on the anti-covid health protocols put in place and the reasons that led to “defining the extraordinary restrictions, in the Municipality of La Spezia, limited only to the Umbertino district, as well as to some types of clubs. We realize the complexity of the historical moment we are experiencing and for this reason, as free citizens , we ask for transparency to protect our health and to know clearly situations that jeopardize the economic fabric of an important quadrilateral of the city “. Not only Spezia: if at the regional level in terms of education and dedicated public transport there were no criticalities, in the last twenty-four hours Genoa also suffered an increase in cases worthy of attention. Thirty-three new cases registered yesterday. “In the face of a very low circulation in the city of Genoa, there is an increase in infections in the historic center. Half of the people tested positive today are of foreign nationality. This is a limited area, just as the cases are limited,” but they all come from this area of ​​the city where virus penetration and circulation have increased, “said Toti.
