Republic of San Marino, 15 December 2021 – In light of the evolution of the Coronavirus epidemic and if the trend should be that of recent times, “we must stop being hypocrites. Because the health situation in San Marino due to the contagion which has never been of this size, it is dramatic: it is a duty to convey to the citizens that if we go on like this we will have to forget about Christmas and New Years“.
The Covid focus: data and infections. The Emilia Romagna bulletin – Yellow zone at Christmas, Bonaccini: “Is Emilia Romagna in danger? We’ll see”
Thus the Secretary of State for Health of the Titano, Roberto Ciavatta spoke at Great and General Council addressing the political forces on the basis of the controversy that arose regarding the latest decree proposed by the San Marino government regarding the containment of the virus. “Perhaps – he argued – this has not yet passed. And then I believe that section to be less careful to try not to annoy some marginalized population, all legitimate, but please: try to stay close to the hospital. Already today those who had to make an intervention can no longer do it and the data, in the coming days, will have more. We have 15 people in isolation and 3 in intensive care but out of 647 active positives at home, the statistics tell us that new patients will arrive in hospital “.
In the last 24 hours, according to data from the ISS-Institute for Social Security of San Marino, 86 new positives in the small Republic, bringing the total of active cases to 647 of which 629 followed at home. “The new positives registered on December 3 were 41, yesterday they were 117, with a incidence rate on swabs performed 8.72%, today we are at 17% – continued Ciavatta -: our risk is not to open more but to convince ourselves that we are not a country to be included in list C. We have 15 people in isolation and 3 in intensive care but out of 647 active positives at home, the statistics show us says new patients will arrive at the hospital. Do we really want to wait for this? Do we want to be the country that waits for the dead before acting? “.
In the opinion of the Secretary of State for Health of San Marino, a country that has also decided to bring school holidays up to 18 December, “We cannot wait until we have a critical situation to make decisions. That is the example of failure, not only of politics, but also of the mentality with which a sovereign state approaches an emergency situation”. On the other hand, Ciavatta continued addressing the political forces of the Titan, “remember that the percentages of the last waves were extremely lower and that we were not dealing with the Delta and Omicron variants, which the World Health Organization and all the major infectious diseases confirm to have a 7 to 8 times higher incidence than the Alpha variant. the orthopedics department is closed, as well as that of surgery, paediatrics and day surgery, we are able to guarantee only oncological and urgent interventions “.
