Coronavirus: The collaboration within the Euregio is growing. More swabs soon

Yesterday was another sad day for Coronavirus deaths in Trentino. 19 people, with an average age of 80 years, died. Among them, there was a doctor that was hospitalized in Rovereto hospital, who had contracted the disease at the workplace. 102 new infected people. Including yesterday, a total of 178 people recovered, out of a total of 2,529 cases, since the beginning of the epidemic. 79 people are in intensive care. There are currently a hundred places available in Trentino, so hospitals are not likely to face difficulties in welcoming other people who need intensive care.

In the next few days, thanks to the contribution of the University of Trento, Cibio, the Fbk and Fem research foundations as well, the number of administered swabs will increase considerably. Primarily to health workers, doctors, nurses and to those working in nursing homes. As for personal protective equipment, Trentino has now a large number available, thanks to both the efforts of the local production system, which has started to produce hospital gowns and masks, and to the agreements made with other regions. The president Maurizio Fugatti invited all the health and care facilities to report any shortcomings to the Civil Protection, which will be able to meet all needs.

The collaboration between Euregio and Trentino-Alto-Adige-Tyrol is growing. During a video conference with the presidents of the Land Tirolo and the Autonomous Province of Bolzano, Platter and Kompatscher, Fugatti thanked the willingness shown towards Trentino, which was able to access personal protective equipment that was found by the other two territories. Fugatti offered in return, the willingness of Trentino, if necessary, to welcome patients from South Tyrol and Tyrol in their own facilities, as already done with patients from Lombardy.

Finally, he sent out an appeal to follow the rules, on which the police forces have to supervise. To date, over 31,700 people were controlled by the police force, out of which more than 1,200 were sanctioned, while 15 businesses were temporarily suspended.
