Italian health officials reported this Tuesday that there had been an additional 403 cases of coronavirus and five deaths on the last day, although they have also confirmed the country has noted several outbreaks in slaughterhouses in Lombardy, most affected by the virus.
The most recent record of the civil protection shows that a total of 35,405 people have died since the beginning of the pandemic, while the total number of cases is 254,636. According to the newspaper ‘Repubblica’, the average age of those infected is around 35 years.
The average age of those infected has thus decreased by almost half compared to the beginning of the pandemic. Today, 14.8 percent of cases are found in people between the ages of 0 and 18, while the vast majority, 56.5 percent, are between 19 and 50 years old. Another 18.9 percent are between 51 and 70 years old and only 9.92 percent of those infected are over 70 years old.
Likewise, 174 people were rescued from the disease on the last day – from a total of 204,142. Those hospitalized rose to 843 after another 33, while the number of people in intensive care units remained at 58.
The dead were recorded in the regions of Veneto (two), Piedmont (one), Lazio (one) and Emilia-Romagna (one). Veneto is also the country that added the most cases since yesterday.
