Filippo Ansaldi, general manager of Alisa, illustrated the situation of the infections: “The average daily incidence every 10 thousand inhabitants rises to 37 but it is an effect of the ordinance that changed the definition of a positive case. The Ligurian incidence is in line with the other northern regions. We are among the regions with the highest percentages of bed occupancy in medium intensity wards while as intensive care we are in the Italian average “
The head of the emergency departments of Liguria, Angelo Gratarola, recalled that many asymptomatic positives are discovered every day in hospitals: “The number of patients who, after arriving at the hospital, find themselves infected but do not have any type of related symptoms is growing. the disease. The government must take it into account. “
Bassetti: “Monoclonal antibodies are currently in short supply”
“Positive week for the number of discharges and stable as admissions, which concern only unvaccinated subjects (in the infectious disease clinic of San Martino, ed) – said the infectious disease specialist Matteo Bassetti in his speech during the evening press conference on the epidemic – A couple have been transferred to intensive care. Like Molnupiravir (the so-called anti-Covid pill, ed) we have reached 50 prescriptions in the Genoa area. We have agreed on the treatment criteria for both the pill and the monoclonal antibodies which are unfortunately in short supply at the moment . At the moment the Omicron variant is over 80% of cases and for this reason we cannot use three types of monoclonals. We still have many patients hospitalized with the Delta variant but I believe that within two weeks that variant will be supplanted by Omicron. ” .
