9.05 am – Fontana: Zero deaths Lombardy should be taken with forceps
The figure of the zero deaths from coronavirus yesterday in Lombardy is to be taken with pliers, unfortunately the communication of data on Sunday was not always precise and perfect, sometimes there are delays. This was stated by the president of the Lombardy Region, Attilio Fontana, guest this morning of Rtl 102.5, commenting on the figures on the progress of the epidemic in the region. The thing that cheers up the number of new infections – he explained – the figure on zero deaths is absolutely official, a positive thing but let’s not delude ourselves that it’s over. I don’t want to give too much enthusiasm, people have already shown it, in the last few days the nightlife and the gatherings have been seen. I don’t want this data to create excessive enthusiasm. And he added: Lombardy identified as the problem? I think unfortunately this was a distorted communication that we wanted to give. wrong to speak of Lombardy as a problem, we must speak of some areas of Lombardy, because there are provinces that fortunately have faced the problem of coronavirus as in most of the rest of the country. The areas in the province of Varese, Como, Lecco, Sondrio but Mantua itself have just been touched by the virus. They have had worrying situations, but absolutely not comparable with what happened in Bergamo, in Lodi in Cremona and also in Brescia. Obviously not a question of Lombardy, but of territories where the virus had been running probably for months without anyone having noticed. so true that the province that had the most negative numbers is that of Piacenza, which has nothing to do with Lombardy.
