Italy has registered another eight deaths in the past 24 hours, with new infections increasing at over 200, and is mainly concerned that many of them are cases imported by people who have come to the country from abroad.
According to the Ministry of Health, the pandemic with the eight deaths and 208 infections of the last day already leaves the country with 241,819 cases and 34,869 deaths. In addition, 946 COVID-19 patients were still admitted to the hospital and 72 to the intensive care unit, while another 133 were discharged, bringing the total number of cured patients to 192,241.
On the other hand, the governor of Veneto, Luca Zaia, announced this Monday that it will take new measures to curb the spread of the pandemic after the number of infections has increased in recent days. The first of these will be the obligation to take a test “for workers returning from abroad from outside the EU”.
In addition, there will be an “ex officio complaint to the judicial authorities” against the positive cases that refuse to be hospitalized and contacts that fail to meet the mandatory 14-day quarantine, Zaia said.
