Less infections in 24 hours than yesterday. the effect of fewer tampons, like every Monday. Today, in fact, the minimum number of tests of the week is recorded (these are the analyzes processed on Sunday). The case ratio on tampons is good, dropping to 5.1% from the previous 6.2%. Typically, this percentage tends to rise with fewer tests, but it doesn’t happen today. For example, last Monday (April 5, Easter Monday) +10,680 cases were registered with a positive rate of 10.4%. From the comparison between 5 and 12 April – the same day of the week – we see a timid improvement.
