But airport and connections are still struggling. Regional borders fall
| Phase 2B of the coronavirus emergency begins on June 3: that’s why it will be the longest and most complex | In Liguria the positives drop: 15 more infections and only one deceased patient. Toti: «Emergency almost closed» |
But it reopens. In these weeks the President of the Region, Giovanni Toti, has always been part of the “opening” line among the governors, also encouraging the Lombards to come to Liguria and for this receiving the thanks of the mayor of Milan, Beppe Sala. “Cases go down, in Spezia we are almost at the end of the Covid emergency “said Toti commenting the day’s data: 15 new positives, 189 hospitalized, one recorded death.
The Councilor for Health Sonia Viale does not feel like declaring the escaped danger and also invites the guests “to prudent behavior». Alisa’s chief epidemiologist, Professor Filippo Ansaldi, states: «We will only see the effect in two weeks. But it is true that from 18 May there are many more people around and the trend of contagions remains decreasing “, he explains showing the graphs of the percentages of positivity found on the swabs made: in the territory in one month we passed from 10% to 1.4%, in hospital we are below 1%. The serious situation of the RSA remains where it had fallen to 11% and in the last week outbreaks have been discovered which have brought the percentage back to 25%.
And in a few hours 500,000 people have already downloaded the Immuni App in the regions that are starting to experiment, including Liguria.
But that fear has now given way to the desire for sea and nature is demonstrated by the stormed beaches (by the Ligurians) and the related controversies, on social networks, for particularly crowded situations such as the enchanting bay of San Fruttuoso of Camogli, in the Portofino Park, where no distancing rules were imposed, even if the places on the boat to get there were contingent. «But how do we control access to the park? We wrote to Governor Toti: to check the beaches it takes staff in uniform», Considers the mayor Francesco Olivari.
But tourists are lacking like water in Liguria. And the councilor for Tourism Gianni Berrino yesterday highlighted the concept of the “rice cake” again available with a remote reprimand at theinfluencer “The cynical beautician”(thousands of contacts on Instagram) who had denounced – in post then deleted – alleged resistance of the hotel structures to accept bookings from Lombardy: «The messages he received, which speak of phantom refusals of reservations by Lombard and Piedmontese tourists by our hoteliers, that’s nonsense. ”
