The population of Bolzano, in northern Italy, has been there to be tested for the coronavirus, since Saturday, November 21. “It is a civic, disciplined region and it is already estimated that more than 70% of the 500,000 inhabitants will have been tested within 48 hours of the weekend, reports journalist Alban Mikoczy, live from the city’s Sports Palace. This is very important because it allows the authorities to make decisions by really knowing the value of the epidemic in their region “.
So far, around 1% to 1.5% of positive cases have been identified. “The authorities will be able to take very firm, very strict measures for those who are positive, but also to open the door a little to all those who are negative”, continues the journalist. The response from the population, which came in large numbers, is proof that everyone has understood the importance of screening.
