The Marche region is at risk from the orange zone. The decree of the region’s president, Francesco Aquaroli, is already in effect, which limits travel to and from the province of Ancona, which is most affected by the infection, from February 17 until Saturday 24, but not from within the same province.
The new decrees of the Ministry of Health are expected to be issued on Friday, with colors assigned to different regions. The concern in the Ancona region is the English variant that continues to spread, and according to Ospedali Riuniti Menzo, director of virus lab, “it is in common now.”
Vaccinations for those over 80s will begin on Saturday, February 20. There was a meeting today between Health Adviser Filippo Saltmartini and representatives of general practitioners, for their “full participation” in the elderly management plan, “to serve the population in a harmonious manner even in the most deprived areas, whether in outpatient clinics or at home.” Fifteen vaccination centers have been established, but after protests by a portion of the population, other alternative sites have also been sought, as in the case of Fermo, where a school gymnasium has been contemplated.
Starting from March 1, school staff vaccinations will begin.
