There Phase 2
it got underway with the reopening of shops, hairdressers, bars and restaurants and in Milan the rate of contagion of the coronavirus
has gone up again. On May 11, seven days after the first partial openings, it was at a minimum: theMilan Ats
and the province recorded an Rt of just over 0.6. By 17 May, however, it had already risen to 0.75
and yesterday, Thursday 21 May, reached 0.86.
One step away from 1, the level of guard indicating on average that one infected person is infecting another, which makes it clear whether the epidemic is in remission or is recovering momentum.
“In the trend of the last few days the first signs of what is happening after the end of the lockdown begin to appear“He explained to Corriere della Sera Antonio Russo, epidemiologist of the Milan Ats. And the fact that, however slowly, the contagion rate has started to grow steadily, day after day, is arousing concern for the Lombard capital. If the ascent should not stop in fact, there is a risk that it is necessary to restore the containment measures, returning to close everything.
Russo assured that in the meantime the Milanese health authorities are testing “all the contacts of the sick and the people who were in quarantine”. In particular, i are proving useful serological tests: the people who test positive are immediately subjected to the swab and it has emerged that so far, among all the people subjected to this double check, 10 percent had the disease in progress. “So we are discovering and isolating a series of asymptomatics“, Explained the epidemiologist. People who, potentially, could have spread the virus again, and who instead remain under strict control. “What has happened cannot be forgotten. Milan cannot afford to let down its guard“Concluded Russo.
