December 12th local time, the Italian Ministry of Health and the Institute of Advanced Health jointly held an epidemic briefing to analyze the recent monitoring data.
At the meeting, Brussferro, president of the Italian Institute of Advanced Health, said that as of
December 9, the incidence of COVID-19 in the country had dropped to 193 cases per 100,000 residents, but the value was still high.
Brusifero believes that the number of hospitalizations, including intensive care units, continues to decline and the epidemic curve is easing, but it is still far from truly curbing the epidemic
and calls on the public to abide by prevention and control measures and minimize movement and gathering during the festival.
