Highlights: Only 7% of people over the age of 19 have been vaccinated against Covid-24. Among frail patients, the percentages are even lower. This week Covid mortality has further increased by 15% compared to the previous week. Annual projection of more than 7 thousand deaths, unfortunately destined to a progressive significant increase. "The causes of these failed results are the complete absence of any planning and organization, by our country's prevention system", says the president of the Federation of Oncologists, Cardiologists and Hematologists (Foce)

"Only 7% of people over the age of 19 have been vaccinated against Covid-24 and, among the frail patients, the percentages are even lower. This week Covid mortality has further increased by 15% compared to the previous week with an annual projection of more than 7 thousand deaths, unfortunately destined to a progressive significant increase". This is the alarm sounded by the president of the Federation of Oncologists, Cardiologists and Hematologists (Foce) Francesco Cognetti.
"Despite the fact that there are as many as <> and a half million doses already available for about two months and many more on the way, in the whole country there have been only about one million vaccinations, with the Regions of the South and Lazio recording very low numbers", adds Cognetti, according to whom "the causes of these failed results are the complete absence of any planning and organization, by our country's prevention system, a real vaccination campaign aimed at several tens of millions of Italian citizens and the complete absence of an information campaign on this mass vaccination".
President Foce also points the finger at "the spread, unfortunately also by some health authorities in the country, of confused and often contradictory messages on the dimensions of the contagion and its lethality, thus having the effect of further demotivating and discouraging an already partially reluctant population".
For Foce experts, it is necessary that "all the country's health authorities, governmental and regional" give "a rapid and decisive turn to the vaccination campaign with a concrete structural and organizational strengthening, accompanied by a real system of widespread dissemination of information on its enormous usefulness."
