Coronavirus: R rate back up in Veneto

After Vicenza businessman positive on return from Bosnia

(ANSA) - ROME, JUL 3 - The R coronavirus infection rate has risen from 0.43 to 1.63 in Veneto, raising the risk from low to elevated, Governor Luca Zaia said Friday.
    The resurgence after a long flattening is due to an outbreak in Vicenza, Zaia said.
    In the city near Venice, he said, a businessman who returned from a trip to Bosnia tested positive after refusing to go to hospital after the first symptoms.
    Zaia said he would step up prevention measures, introducing the enforced hospitalisation of those who refuse admittance. (ANSA).
