The epidemic curve in Italy is still growing. There are 1,391 new cases in the last 24 hours, against 1,400 yesterday but above all the 808 of last Sunday, confirming a clear increasing weekly trend. The swabs are 143,332, 65 thousand less than yesterday, so much so that the positivity rate rises from 0.7% to 0.97%, therefore a step away from 1%, as had not happened since June 14.
The deaths are 7 (yesterday 12), and it is the lowest number since last 12 September. The total number of victims rises to 127,775. Intensive therapies are stable (yesterday -8) with 6 admissions of the day, and remain at 161 total, while hospitalizations drop by 13 units (yesterday -20), 1,134 in all. This is what emerges from the daily bulletin of the Ministry of Health.
The region with the most cases today is Lombardy with 250 new positives; followed by Sicily (+183), Campania (+169), Lazio (+164) and Veneto (+125). The total cases thus rise to 4,271,276. The healed are 1,318 (yesterday 1,763), for a total of 4,102,420 since the beginning of the pandemic. The currently positives return to rise, albeit slightly (+66), for the first time since May 2 (yesterday -381), and rise to 41,081 in all, of which 39,786 in home isolation.
