Data on contagions and deaths from the Covid-19 epidemic in Italy are rising again and the special surveillance regions are still Lombardy, Piedmont and Liguria, in a decidedly fragmented Italy, with regions where new cases are counted on the tip of the fingers and others in which they are in the order of tens and hundreds. It is a very diversified situation, that of the trend of the epidemic in Italy, just at a time like this, in which "the important data are those relating to the parameters in the various Italian regions in view of the reopening", observes the physicist Federico Ricci Tersenghi, from the Sapienza University of Rome.
According to the daily civil protection budget, there are 50,966 coronavirus patients in Italy , 1,976 less than the day before, when the drop had been 2,358.
There have been 117 coronavirus victims in the last 24 hours, rising from the lowest level since the beginning of March reached 78. In Lombardy on the last day 58 were recorded, half of the national data, while the day before had been 22 The deaths at national level thus rise to 33,072. Eight regions - Marche, Abruzzo, Umbria, Sardinia, Valle d'Aosta, Calabria, Molise, Basilicata - and the Province of Bolzano without new victims.
The new positives in Italy rise again, with a return to the levels of 4 days ago . There are now 231,139 people infected, 584 more. The figure currently includes positives, victims and healed. In Lombardy there are 384 more. The day before the national increase had been 397.
The healed and discharged for coronavirus in Italy rose to 147,101, with an increase of 2,443. The increase had been 2,677 on Tuesday.
There are 505 patients admitted to intensive care for Coronavirus, 16 fewer. Of these, 175 are in Lombardy, 8 fewer. On the other hand, 7,729 patients hospitalized with symptoms, with a drop of 188, while those in home isolation are 42,732, with a drop of 1,772.
The ratio between swabs made in the last 24 hours (67,324) and identified cases (584) is one infection every 115.3 tests, almost 0.87%, on average over the past few days. If repeated swabs are excluded, about 40% on average, the percentage of positives on only new cases tested - as per parameters of the Ministry of Health - rises to 1.6%.
