February 26th, local time, the Italian Ministry of Health and the Institutes of Advanced Health jointly held an epidemic briefing to analyze recent monitoring data.
At the meeting, Reza, head of the disease prevention department of the Italian Ministry of Health, pointed out that the variant novel coronavirus epidemic has been epidemic in many regions, causing many local outbreaks, and called for continued strict prevention and control.
The latest monitoring shows that in the week from February 15 to February 21, the incidence of COVID-19 in Italy rose to 145.16 cases per 100,000 residents, and the median age of patients fell to 44 years old.
This is likely to be associated with an increase in infections on campus, according to Reza, and even needs to consider suspending classes if necessary.
Due to the unoptimistic epidemic, it is expected that many regions of Italy will raise the level of prevention and control from next week.
