20,396 new cases and 502 deaths – time.news

I’m 20.396 i new cases of coronavirus in Italy (yesterday they were +15.276, here the bulletin). It goes up like this at least 3.258.770 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 502 (yesterday they were +354), for a total of 103,001 victims from February 2020. People recovered or discharged they are altogether 2.619.654 e 14.116 those that came out of the Covid nightmare today (+15,807 yesterday). The positive current – the subjects who have the virus – turn out to be in everything 536.115, equal to +5.758 compared to yesterday (-909 the day before). The increase of positive current today – with the pi sign in front – due to the fact that the healed, added to the deaths, are fewer than in the new cases.

The swabs and the scenario

I total swabs (molecular and antigenic) were 369.375, or 190,360 more than yesterday when there were 179,015. While the rate of positivity 5,5% (the approximation of 5.521%): it means that out of 100 swabs performed more than 5 were positive; yesterday it was 8.5%. Here is the map of the contagion in Italy.

More infections in 24 hours than yesterday, in the face of multiple pads. The curve begins to rise, like every Tuesday, thanks to the many analyzes processed, and then touches the maximum between Wednesday and Friday and falls on the weekend. And the case / test ratio is lowered to 5.5% (it happens with more swabs), from 8.5% on Monday. From the comparison with the data of last Tuesday when +19,749 cases were registered with a positive rate of 5.7%, it is clear that the scenario is not improving. However, the growth of new infections seems slower than the speed of October-November and experts think that the epidemiological curve will reach its peak by the end of the month.

The Lombardy back to being the region most affected by the number of new cases (+4,235 cases, here the bulletin) – yesterday Emilia-Romagna was – followed by three regions above 2,000: Campania (+2.656), Emilia Romagna (+2.184) e Piedmont (+2.074, here the bulletin). With over a thousand daily positives there are: Veneto (+1.901) who with more than 60 thousand swabs made the highest number of regional tests of the day, Lazio (+1.497), Tuscany (+1.247) e Puglia (+1.126). All other regions have a two- or three-digit increase.

The victims

Victims are increasing. There have been no more than 500 deaths in the bulletin since January 26, when 541 people lost their lives in one day. A dramatic figure that also counts past deaths (see for example Campania). These are numbers similar to those of the end of January-beginning of February, for example on February 2 the deaths were 499 (the figure closest to that of today, but below the threshold of 500) and then fewer and fewer. Today no region has zero deaths, a sign that the virus is hitting in a tragic way everywhere, while the greater number of deaths in Veneto (+84), Lombardy (+81) e Campania (+65, of which 31 died in the last 48 hours and 34 previously died but registered yesterday). To have over 40 bereaved are: Emilia Romagna (+47) e Piedmont (+43, of which 2 registered today). Below the details of all the regions.

The health system

The pressure on hospitals is still rising. The beds occupied in ordinary Covid wards I’m +760 (yesterday +820), for a total of 26,098 hospitalized. I beds occupied in intensive care (ICU) I’m +99 (yesterday +75), bringing the total of more seriously ill a 3.256. 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. In fact, i new entrants to TI I’m +319 (yesterday +243). The highest number of people in intensive care in Lombardy (+83), Emilia-Romagna (+38) and Veneto (+32)

The health situation causes concern: according to the weekly monitoring Agenas (Agency for Regional Health Services), updated to March 15, the intensive care units employed at national level are 35% of the total available (yesterday it was 34%), beyond the alert threshold of the 30% and equal to + 4% in a week, while the non-intensive beds occupied are 39% of the total (+ 4% in seven days), with the critical threshold set at 40%.
