Calabria at risk of the yellow zone with more severe anti-covid rules and measures such as Sicily. According to the latest data contained in the decision-making indicators of the Ministry of Health, being examined today in the control room, the Region is starting to change color, thus abandoning the white area. Calabria – according to the indicators, updated to 14 September – appears to exceed the main parameters, such as the weekly incidence of Covid cases, which in the period 10-16 September, although down compared to the previous weeks, stood at 84.6 cases every 100 thousand inhabitants, well beyond the threshold of 50 cases. Equally outside the maximum threshold is the employment by Covid-19 patients in medical departments which stands at 17.4% (therefore above the threshold set at 15%) while the employment of intensive care units exceeds, albeit slightly , the 10% threshold, reaching 10.7%.
As for the other regions, Sicily continues to exceed the parameters, with an incidence, albeit decreasing, still high, equal to 109.1 cases per 100 thousand inhabitants (last week it was 148.7 and the previous one, between 27 August and 2 September, it had reached 190.4 cases. Even ordinary hospitalizations remain above the threshold, at 20.7% and the employment of Covid patients in intensive care which is at 11.8%. , the island should remain yellow again this week.
