The immediate and massive interventions that we have put in place allow many positive asymptomatic people to emerge, often already in home isolation, through an effective action of contact tracing. This contributes to not worryingly engaging healthcare facilities and hospital departments and to managing and then extinguishing the outbreaks from time to time. We are comforted by the fact that there are no deaths for the fifth consecutive day. Nor – compared to yesterday – increases the number of patients in intensive care and in non-intensive care units “.

Just as I repeat the importance of scrupulously observing them prescriptions provided by the specific protocols issued for all economic sectors and social activities “.
