The Italian authorities have confirmed 192 new cases and seven deaths in the country’s last hours, a decrease compared to yesterday’s records in these sections – 235 cases, 21 deaths -.
The remainder of this Sunday, which is also among the 15 deaths and 223 daily infections on Friday, has totaled 241,419 infections and 34,861 deaths since the epidemic started. 192,108 people were released.
The number of civil protection letters shows positively that daily cases have decreased for the first time in the past five days, breaking a worrying upward trend. It should be noted that the deaths only occurred in two regions: 6 in Lombardy and one in Emilia Romagna.
However, the authorities are calling for caution. For the first time since Italy reached the peak of infections, the currently positive cases – ie the discounting of layoffs and deaths – have risen again: 21 more since Saturday to 14,642. In addition, the number of patients in the intensive care unit has risen to 74.
