Healthcare – Councilor Alessio D’Amato comments on today’s regional data: “There is a drop in tension and this inevitably produces an increase in cases”
Rome – We receive and publish – Today we record 31 positive cases and one death. In Rome city there are 14 new cases.
The increase stems mainly from import cases and a lower level of attention. There are 10 cases related to pre-hospitalization screening activities.
I have been saying this for days there is a drop in tension and this inevitably produces an increase in cases and we also record a decrease in the age of the infections. There is a need for those arriving from areas with a high incidence of virus circulation who are placed in isolation to prevent extra Schengen rules from being circumvented with intermediate stopovers.
In the ASL Roma 1 of the two cases today one is registered in the pre-hospitalization phase at San Camillo and one at Covid Hospital Columbus.
In the ASL Roma 2 there are 6 cases and of these five refer to a single familiar link already known and placed in home isolation, a further case concerns a child of a deceased patient of the IRCCS San Raffale Pisana.
In the ASL Roma 3 there are 6 cases today and of these two are employees of the World Food Program returning from Somalia reported by a United Nations doctor.
A further positive case of returning from Brescia where he had been for health reasons. In the ASL Roma 4 there are 4 new cases and one of these in the pre-hospitalization phase at San Camillo in Rome and two cases of two women in access to the emergency room of Civitavecchia.
There is also a death of a 74-year-old man from Capena.
In the ASL Roma 5 of the six new cases, four refer to a family cluster of Zagarolo, a possible family that indicates the cases of the two brothers in the summer center and the school dinner on the Casilina. The family, which hosted the two brothers who were positive, was placed in house isolation.
A further case concerns a girl hospitalized at the Policlinico Umberto I.
In the ASL Roma 6 of the 5 new positive cases two cases already isolated at home have a link with the family cluster of Anzio-Ardea, a positive case of importation of a boy of Bangladesh nationality returning from Dhaka was positive and was placed in home isolation, the flight was one of those already covered and on which an international contact tracing had started.
Also in the ASL Roma 6, a one-month-old baby in Ciampino tested positive and was transferred to the Bambino Gesù pediatric hospital in Palidoro.
Parents tested negative for the swab and an epidemiological investigation of close contacts is taking place.
Finally, as regards the trips back to Italy in the ASL of Frosinone, there are two daily cases and one of these concerns a woman in quarantine and returning from Peru was positive. International contact tracing procedures started.
