(ANSA) - MILAN, 24 JAN - "The data of the Lombardy Region are public and the mayor Beppe Sala knows it very well".
The Lombard governor Attilio Fontana thus replies to the mayor of Milan who asked Pirellone to show the data to reveal the truth about the incorrect calculation of the Rt.
"The men of your government, after we resorted to the TAR and reported anomalies on the algorithm of the Istituto Superiore di Sanità which calculates the RT - counterattacks Fontana in a post on Facebook -, asked us to integrate the data already sent and not modified with further specifications that are not part of the standard requests. And, as if by magic, the red has become orange, but not yellow. At the same time, the Ministry's request has been transformed into a 'rectification' of the Region, evidently to throw the error on others ".
Therefore, "if Beppe Sala wants to know why the error was found only for Lombardy, apply to the Ministry - he continues -, we are not given to know of a secret algorithm that they have and use only in Rome. Maybe they answer him" .
