Italy: Florence declared Covid red area

 

In Italy, urban areas including Naples and Florence have been declared red areas for the coronavirus as hospitals are working hard to increase the number of new admissions. 

 


Gianni Rezza, director of the National Institute of Health, said that with Italy’s newly confirmed cases reaching 650 per 100,000 people, the “significant increase in hospitalizations” justified the adoption of stricter measures. 

 

The number of confirmed cases reached a high incidence of nearly 41,000 pandemics every day, and 550 people died of the virus within 24 hours, bringing the country’s known death toll to 44,139. The total reported by Italy exceeds 1.1. Millions of virus cases. 

 


Unlike the more affluent areas in the north, the medical system in southern Italy is more fragile. Traditionally, many southerners have traveled to the north to receive unconventional medical services. 

 

The system in Campania, where Naples is located, was freed from government control for ten years last December. The system aims to eliminate waste and improve care. 

 


The union representative pointed out that 16,000 medical staff have been laid off in a 10-year period. However, the virus spread to the entire country during a very relaxing summer, with crowded Italian beaches, restaurants and nightclubs everywhere.
