I’m 17.221 i new cases of coronavirus in Italy (yesterday it was +13.708, here the bulletin). Salt so at least 3.717.602 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 487 (yesterday they were +627), for a total of 112,861 victims from February 2020. People recovered or discharged they are altogether 3.060.411 e 20.229 those that came out of the Covid nightmare today (+20.927 yesterday). The positive current – the subjects who have the virus – appear to be in everything 544.330, equal to -3.507 compared to yesterday (-7.868 the day before), down for the third consecutive day.
The swabs and the scenario
I total swabs (molecular and antigenic) were 362.162, or 22,223 more than yesterday when it was 339,939. While the rate of positivity 4,7% (the approximation of 4.755%): it means that out of 100 swabs performed, more than 4 were positive; yesterday it was 4%. Here is the map of the contagion in Italy.
More infections in 24 hours than yesterday, as always happens in the middle of the week. The oscillating curve touches its maximum point between Thursday and Friday, but in a slow descent. This decline was seen in the comparison with last Thursday (April 1) – the same day last week -, when +23,649 cases were registered with a positive rate of 6.6% (see graph below). Today’s test case ratio rises to 4.7% from 4% Wednesday, but far from 6% or 7%. The scenario improves. The independent monitoring of the Gimbe Foundation highlights this: -11.1% new cases in the period 31 March-6 April compared to the previous week. In decrease. With a clarification. The decline overstated by the collapse of the people tested during the Easter period specifies Nino Cartabellotta, president of Gimbe. Deaths also decreased slightly over the seven days. The slippery moment – comments Roberta Siliquini, director of Hygiene at the University of Turin -. Now there are restrictions, you have to be careful for the next few weeks and vaccinate as much as possible.
