AGI – There are 907 Covid cases in Italy in the last 24 hours, an increase compared to the 480 of yesterday (a figure influenced as always by the few post-weekend swabs) and above all of the 679 of last Tuesday: for the fifth day in a row there are more infections compared to the same day of the previous week, confirming that the downward trend, which had lasted for 14 weeks, has begun to reverse. The swabs are 192,424, 118 thousand more than yesterday, so much so that the positivity rate drops slightly to 0.5% (yesterday 0.6%).
The deaths are 24 (yesterday 31), of which 2 are recoveries of the last months of the Umbria Region. The total casualties since the beginning of the epidemic have risen to 127,704.
