In Italy 9,630 new cases and 274 deaths. 5.6% positivity rate

I’m 9,630 new cases of coronavirus in Italy (yesterday they were +13.452, here the bulletin). Salt so at least 2,818,863 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 274 (yesterday they were +232), for a total of 95,992 victims from February 2020. While the people recovered or discharged I’m 2,334,968 overall: 10,335 those that came out of the Covid nightmare today (+8.946 yesterday). He positive current – the subjects who have the virus – turn out to be in everything 387.903, equal to -992 compared to yesterday (+4.272 the day before). There decline in current positives today – with the minus sign in front – depends on the fact that the healed, added to the deaths, are in greater number than in the new cases.

The swabs and the scenario

THE total swabs (molecular and antigenic) were 170,672 , which is 80,314 less than yesterday when it was 250,986. The rate of positivity 5.6% (the approximation of 5.642%): it means that out of 100 swabs performed more than 5 were positive; yesterday it was 5.3%. Here is the map of the contagion in Italy.

Less infections in 24 hours than yesterday. A drastic decline in new infections is observed every Monday due to a few swabs: in fact, today the analyzes processed on Sunday are communicated and represent the lowest number of the whole week. The case / test ratio rises to 5.6% from 5.3% on Sunday. From the comparison with last Monday when +7,351 cases were communicated with a positive rate of 4.1%, it is noted that the scenario does not improve. On the weekly distance, according to the calculations of the physicist and scientific communicator Giorgio Sestili, the situation in the period 15-21 February stable, having remained so for five weeks now. In the last week, 87 thousand cases were recorded and there was a slight increase of + 3% compared to the previous one – explains Sestili -, but the cases are substantially in line with the trend of the last five weeks. There are for several provinces that have had a strong increase in infections: Bolzano is the most affected with 591 cases per 100 thousand inhabitants; Pescara with 448; Bologna with 311; Brescia with 298; Again with 297; Trento with 288; Perugia with 277 and Rimini with 272. There is a concentration in the North-East quadrant with a part of central Italy, such as Umbria and Marche. As if the trail of cases is descending along the Adriatic line.

To have a four-digit positive increment I’m Emilia Romagna (+1.847 cases), Lombardy (+1.491) and Campania (+ 1.202). All other regions are showing two- or three-digit growth. The highest number of regional tampons was done in Sardinia, amounting to over 25 thousand, which has allowed to find 77 infected in the last 24 hours.

The victims

The victims are less than 300 for the third consecutive day (+232 dead yesterday and +251 on February 20). It had never happened in 2021.

We specify: the data could be incomplete, as happens on the weekend and sometimes even on the first day of the week. We do not know, as no information is provided. In any case, the curve of deaths on a weekly basis is going down: There were 2,141 deaths in a week – says Sestili -, that is -7% of a week ago. Today, only the Valle d’Aosta does not have grief, while the greater number of deaths in Lombardy (+45 deaths, here the bulletin), Lazio (+24, here the bulletin), Emilia Romagna (+23), Piedmont (+22, here the bulletin) e Campania (+21).
