New leap in Covid hospitalizations:
they grew by 19.5% in one week
The survey of 29 November carried out among the sentinel hospitals belonging to the Fiaso network shows a significant increase in patients with Sars-Cov-2 infection.
This is the second week of double-digit growth: an increase of 24% had already been recorded in the report dated November 23rd.
In particular, patients in ordinary Covid wards increased by 20%, while intensive care units recorded a smaller increase of 9%.
65% of hospital admissions are of patients With Covid, i.e. those who arrived for the treatment of other pathologies but were accidentally found positive for the pre-admission swab, 34% are hospitalized For Covid, i.e. they have developed pulmonary respiratory syndromes typical of Sars-Cov-2 infection.
However, this figure is stable compared to the previous survey.
The trend of hospitalizations with respiratory and pulmonary syndromes for the unvaccinated worsens, rising over 28% in ordinary wards and over 30% in intensive care.
In resuscitation, it is also worth noting the considerable age difference of more than 10 years between vaccinated and unvaccinated people whose average age is decidedly young (about 60 years) and in 100% of cases they are patients, both vaccinated and unvaccinated, frail or suffering from other pathologies.
A total of 22 patients under the age of 18 are hospitalized for or with Covid, in the four pediatric hospitals and in the pediatric wards of the Fiaso sentinel hospitals.
This week we observe three children, in the range between 0-6 months, in resuscitation for Covid, while for several weeks this ward had been free of patients with respiratory and pulmonary syndromes.
