Health officials said on Friday that in Italy, after several weeks of strict restrictions, the situation of the covida-19 pandemic has improved.
The 7-day data showed that between March 22 and 28, the incidence rate dropped to 232 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, compared with 240 cases in the previous period.
Experts who submitted weekly reports on the pandemic on Friday said they are still concerned about the increasing number of covid-19 infections in the hospital.
According to the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as of Tuesday, the new Italian provinces, including Veneto, will move from the “red area” to the less worrying “orange” area.
The regulations that apply to the red zone apply throughout Italy during the Easter holidays from April 3rd to 5th.
In terms of vaccination, Italy is working hard to achieve its goal: to use half a million doses of this vaccine every day. Health Minister Roberto Speranza said that according to the latest data, the maximum number so far is 280,000.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, authorities have confirmed that nearly 110,000 people have died and more than 3.6 million people have been infected with covid-19.
