20,159 new cases and 300 deaths – time.news

I’m 20.159 i new cases of coronavirus in Italy (yesterday they were +23,832, here the bulletin). Salt so at least 3.376.376 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 300 (yesterday they were +401), for a total of 104,942 victims from February 2020. People recovered or discharged they are altogether 2.699.762 e 13.526 those that came out of the Covid nightmare today (+14.598 yesterday). The positive current – the subjects who have the virus – turn out to be in everything 571.672, equal to +6.219 compared to yesterday (+8.914 the day before).

The swabs and the scenario

I total swabs (molecular and antigenic) were 277.086, or 77,394 less than yesterday when it was 354,480. While the rate of positivity 7,3% (the approximation of 7.275%): it means that out of 100 swabs performed more than 7 were positive; yesterday it was 6.7%. Here is the map of the contagion in Italy.

Less infections in 24 hours than yesterday, in the face of fewer tampons, like every Sunday. The case / test ratio rises to 7.3% from 6.7% (happens with less analysis). But from the comparison with last Sunday (March 14), when +21,315 cases were registered with a positive rate of 7.8%, it seems that the scenario improves a bit. There are small signs of a slowdown in the epidemic, says Nino Cartabellotta, president of the Gimbe Foundation, looking at the data from the last 3-4 days. In fact, this week (March 15-21) we never reached 26 thousand cases per day, which instead were exceeded twice last week (see +26,824 cases on March 12 and +26,062 cases on March 13). If the bell curve maintains this trend, it is likely that the peak has been exceeded. This is a statistical consideration, not a certainty. All will depend on compliance with the measures in the coming weeks, to achieve significant effects on the curve. The number of cases is still high, as is the percentage of positives. There are reasons to look forward to the next few weeks with more confidence, says Health Minister Roberto Speranza.

The Lombardy the region most affected by the number of new infections (+4,003 cases, here the bulletin) – less than yesterday – thanks to over 46,000 swabs, which is the highest number of regional tests of the day. Above 2 thousand there is only theEmilia Romagna (+2.448). They follow with a four-digit increment: Campania (+1.810), Lazio (+1.793), Piedmont (+1.751, here the bulletin), Veneto (+1.586), Puglia (+1.546) e Tuscany (+1.358). All other regions report a two- or three-digit increase.
