I’m 21.267 i new cases of coronavirus in Italy (yesterday they were +18,765, here the bulletin). Salt so at least 3.440.862 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 460 (yesterday they were +551), for a total of 106,339 victims from February 2020. People recovered or discharged they are altogether 2.773.215 e 20.132 those that came out of the Covid nightmare today (+20,601 yesterday). The positive current – the subjects who have the virus – turn out to be in everything 561.308, equal to +654 compared to yesterday (-2.413 the day before).
The swabs and the scenario
I total swabs (molecular and antigenic) were 363.767, or 28,578 more than yesterday when it was 335,189. While the rate of positivity 5,8% (the approximation of 5.846%): it means that out of 100 swabs performed more than 5 were positive; yesterday it was 5.6%. Here is the map of the contagion in Italy.
More infections in 24 hours than yesterday, with 28 thousand more tampons, and the positivity rate changes little: it stands at 5.8% against 5.6% on Tuesday. The curve rises, like every week, to then touch the maximum point between Thursday and Friday and fall again on the weekend and Monday due to fewer analyzes processed. From the comparison with last Wednesday (March 17), when +23,059 cases were registered with a positive rate of 6.2%, it seems that the scenario improves a bit. It is true that the epidemic gives signs of slowing down, but there are still many daily infections and to bring down the curve we must continue to respect the restrictions, while the vaccinations go on.
The Lombardy it remains the region most affected by the number of daily cases (+4,282, here the bulletin), with over 59,000 swabs, which is the highest number of regional tests of the day. Above 2 thousand cases there are: Piedmont (+2.223, here the bulletin), Campania (+2.045) e Veneto (+2.042). They follow with a four-digit increment: Emilia Romagna (+1.725), Lazio (+1.709), Puglia (+1.709, same number of new cases in Lazio) e Tuscany (+1,197). All other regions are growing in two or three digits.
The curve of new cases on the Civil Protection website
At the European level, the situation is worrying. Infections are rising in 19 Member States of the European Union (one in France, ed), 15 hospital admissions are increasing, and 8 are seeing deaths increase, said EU Health Commissioner Stella Kyriakides. Adding: In the last few weeks we have seen an increase in the number of variants: the British one is the predominant one, recorded in 25 countries and is in 80% of the test sequences in some states. The South African variant has been tracked in 18 countries, and the Brazilian one in nine.
Victims are decreasing: they are 460 against 551 yesterday (91 fewer). Only the Valle d’Aosta communicates zero bereavement from a week, while the greatest number of deaths in Lombardy (+110) bringing the total to over 30,000 deaths since the beginning of the emergency, Campania (+52, of which 28 died in the last 48 hours and 24 previous) ed Emilia Romagna (+45). Below the details of all the regions.
According to physicist Giorgio Sestili, the increase in deaths in recent days is an expected figure that reflects the increase in cases that occurred about 20 days ago, but which has been slowed down thanks to the vaccination of many elderly people and is heading towards the peak, expected in about a week.
The health system
The pressure on the health system continues to increase. The beds occupied in ordinary Covid wards I’m +10 (yesterday +379), for a total of 28,438 hospitalized. I beds occupied in intensive care (ICU) I’m +42 (yesterday +36), bringing the total of more seriously ill a 3.588. 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 entrances to resuscitation I’m +300 (yesterday +317). The highest number of people entering IT in Lombardy (+65), Veneto (+36) and Emilia-Romagna (+33).
