I’m 15.267 i new cases of coronavirus in Italy (yesterday they were +21,315, here the bulletin). It goes up like this at least 3.238.394 the number of people who have contracted the SARS-CoV-2 virus (including recovered and died) since the outbreak began. THE deaths today I’m 354 (yesterday they were +264), for a total of 102,499 victims from February 2020. People recovered or discharged they are altogether 2.605.538 e 15.807 those that came out of the Covid nightmare today (+9,835 yesterday). The positive current – the subjects who have the virus – turn out to be in everything 530.357, equal to -909 compared to yesterday (+11.205 the day before). There decline in current positives today – with the minus sign in front – depends on the fact that the healed, added to the deaths, are greater in number than in the new cases.
The swabs and the scenario
I total swabs (molecular and antigenic) were 179.015, or 94,951 less than yesterday when it was 273,966. While the rate of positivity 8,5% (the approximation of 8.528%): it means that out of 100 swabs performed more than 8 were positive; yesterday it was 7.8%. Here is the map of the contagion in Italy.
Less infections in 24 hours than yesterday. The decrease in new infections is observed every Monday due to the lower number of swabs (today the weekly minimum of analyzes processed is recorded). To worry about the rising case / test ratio (it happens with fewer tests because you are probably looking for a more targeted way), reaching 8.5% from 7.8% on Sunday: This is the highest percentage since the rapid tests and were introduced on January 15th for the first time above 8%. From the comparison with last Monday, the new cases were +13,902 with a positive rate of 7.5%, we see that the scenario is getting worse. We are probably close to the peak, but there is already a deceleration in the growth of infections, said Franco Locatelli, president of the Superior Health Council (Css), who predicts a more favorable epidemiological situation after Easter. What was decided with the decree by the government will serve to cool the curve – explained Locatelli a Sky Tg24 -, both in terms of Rt and of cumulative incidence compared to 100 thousand inhabitants.
L’Emilia Romagna the region most affected by the number of new cases (+2,822 positive) and exceeds 300,000 infected since the beginning of the emergency. Follows the Lombardy (+2,185, here the bulletin) who carried out 21,605 swabs, which is the highest number of regional tests of the day. Above one thousand there are: Campania (+1.823), Piedmont (+1.742), Lazio (+1.536) e Tuscany (+1.106). All other regions report a two- or three-digit increase.
The death toll grows in 24 hours. it is probable that past deaths occurred over the weekend and not communicated in time are included in the data.

The health system

I beds occupied in intensive care (ICU) I’m +75 (yesterday +100), bringing the total of more seriously ill a 3.157. The change in the number of beds occupied, in critical and non-critical areas, indicates the balance between patients who left and those who entered in the last 24 hours.
