The bulletin: 13,708 cases, 627 deaths (but with deaths not recorded before). Intensive and hospitalizations drop


I’m 13,708 i new cases of coronavirus in Italy (yesterday they were +7,767, here the bulletin). It goes up like this at least 3,700,393 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 627 (yesterday they were +421), for a total of 112,374 victims from February 2020. People recovered or discharged they are altogether 3,040,182 is 20,927 those that came out of the Covid nightmare today (+21.733 yesterday). The positive current – subjects who have the virus – turn out to be in everything 547.837, equal to -7.868 compared to yesterday (-14,371 the day before), down for two days. There decline in current positives today – with the minus sign in front – depends on the fact that the healed, added to the deaths, are greater in number than in the new cases.

The swabs and the scenario

THE total swabs (molecular and antigenic) were 339.939, or 226,977 more than yesterday when it was 112,962. While the rate of positivity 4% (the approximation of 4.03%): it means that out of 100 swabs performed 4 were positive; yesterday it was 6.9%. Here is the map of the contagion in Italy.


More infections in 24 hours than yesterday. The curve rises slightly, resuming its swing, due to the effect of a greater number of buffers. Good news comes from the case report on testing that collapses to 4%, from 6.9% on Tuesday. To see a percentage of around 4% you have to go back to mid-February. A sign that really bodes well. Furthermore, from the comparison with last Wednesday (March 31) – the same day last week -, when +22,673 cases were registered with a positive rate of 6.4%, we see a clear improvement in the scenario. There is a tendency to reduce the curve and consolidated, explains Enrico Bucci, a biologist at Temple University a Rainews24. To reset the curve, which currently has a decreasing trend as the graph also shows, it takes time. Averting a possible high plateau (oscillating around 10-20 thousand cases per day) in the coming weeks. The problem? Full hospitals. The places occupied in the ordinary wards still exceed the peak of the first wave (see 29,010 admitted on April 4, 2020). The decline in hospitalizations is not seen and this worries us. I believe that in April we will still have to stay in the trenches, says Luca Zaia, governor of Veneto, commenting on the data for his region.
