INCREASING ADMISSIONS FOR RESPIRATORY DISEASES
There is a ‘significant’ growth in hospitalizations for respiratory problems related to Covid-19. This is indicated by the survey of 5 July conducted through the sentinel hospitals belonging to the network of the Federation of health and hospital companies (Fiaso). “Patients who have a specific Covid disease with respiratory syndromes are once again growing significantly”, observes the president of Fiaso, Giovanni Migliore. The widespread circulation of the virus, says Migliore, “forces us to reorganize our hospitals, reopening the departments dedicated to respiratory and ventilatory assistance, but also continuing to hospitalize those who do not have specific symptoms in departments where it is possible to create safe isolation. “.
