(ANSA) – CAGLIARI, 21 OCT – “If in the next few hours the number of infections will increase again and that of hospitalizations will continue to rise with the current trend, we will be ready to take radical action to reverse this trend and better protect the health of all Sardinians “. This was declared by the president of the Sardinia Region Christian Solinas after the latest bulletin issued by the regional crisis unit. “This means – he explains – in agreement with the Minister of Health and with the help of the regional scientific committee, applying in Sardinia a ‘Stop & Go’ of 15 days for the main activities, with the simultaneous closure of ports and airports to limit rapid and effective circulation of people and, with them, of the virus “. Naturally, Solinas then announces, “we will prepare at the same time a series of economic support measures to support the losses deriving from the temporary suspension of activities”.
“The progression of the contagion curve – underlines Solinas – is registering an acceleration that requires further and timely actions to avoid compromising the health system and the regular provision of care”. Up to now, he adds, “thanks to the extraordinary commitment of the hospital, territorial and administrative staff, the emergency has been governed in an orderly and effective way”. But today, he clarifies, “we are faced with a new fact: the chains of contagion are multiplying exponentially because too many have let their guard down and are underestimating the extent of the phenomenon, so much so that the simple appeal to common sense and responsibility in observing good practices (personal distancing, ban on gathering, hand hygiene) seem not to be sufficient “(ANSA).
