There are 592 new positives at Covid19 in Sicily out of 26,236 processed swabs. To say it is the latest update on the pandemic published by the Ministry of Health. Out of 19,727 current positives, 783 are hospitalized and 121 are in intensive care.
The healed in the last 24 hours are 10 for a total of 4,223 from the beginning of the pandemic to today. The healed are 3,533.
The new cases in Sicily are distributed as follows: Palermo 254 cases, Catania 79, Messina 63, Syracuse 29, Trapani 32, Ragusa 43, Caltanissetta 36, Agrigento 45, Enna 11.
The anti-covid controls for those arriving in Sicily have been extended. This is foreseen by an order signed by the president of the Sicilian Region Nello Musumeci. Therefore, the checks at the main gates of the island (ports and airports) started last summer, intensified in December and which the Region has decided to maintain also in recent months, remain. In addition, in recent weeks, all control points and drive-ins can also count on new generation buffers.
It should be remembered that anyone entering Sicily is required to register on the platform. This measure is not foreseen for commuters who have left the island for a period of less than four days. On the online platform it is possible to declare that you have carried out a molecular swab in the 48 hours prior to arrival.
Those who have not had the opportunity to undergo the exam are required to swab in one of the drive-ins set up by the Asp. Those who do not intend to follow this procedure can carry out the examination at an authorized laboratory at their own expense. Anyone who does not follow either of the two indications has the obligation to place themselves in fiduciary isolation for ten days and to communicate it to the general practitioner, to the pediatrician of free choice or to the Asp.
Meanwhile, the hub activity continues as part of the vaccination campaign. To those already operational in Palermo and Catania, the Syracuse facility will also be added tomorrow. In the next few weeks, new vaccination hubs will be activated in the other capitals that will flank the administration points of the regional health system.
