Less increase, that is from 13.7%the hospital “with covid That is, those patients who came to the hospital for treatment of other diseases and found their positivity in the pre-admission smear. This is indicated by the July 5 survey conducted by sentinel hospitals of the Federation of Health Companies and Hospitals (FIASO). In particular, hospitalizations in regular wards recorded a 15% increase while in intensive care in sentinel hospitals, albeit still relatively low numbers, there is a doubling of the number of occupied beds. In resuscitation cases, in particular, the non-vaccination rate remains at 19%; Among the vaccinated, on the other hand, 80% of those present appear to have had the vaccine for more than 4 months.

More attention should be paid to infants and young children.” This data – comment Alberto Villani, Head of the Department of Pediatrics and Infectious Diseases of the Bambino Gesu Hospital – confirms that the increase in the circulation of the virus includes the developmental age with methods and characteristics similar to those of the general population: an increase in infection and in the number of people with symptoms that appear and the consequent increase in hospital admissions “.

Increased admission to respiratory diseases
There is a ‘significant’ growth in hospitalizations due to respiratory issues related to Covid-19. This is indicated by the July 5 survey conducted by sentinel hospitals of the Association of Health Companies and Hospitals Association (FIASO). “Patients with a specific Covid disease with respiratory syndromes are growing again significantly,” notes Giovanni Migliori, president of Fiaso. The widespread spread of the virus is forcing us to reorganize our hospitals, reopen departments for respiratory and ventilator assistance, but also continue to move patients without identifiable symptoms into departments where safe isolation can be established, Miglior says. . “.
