Data for Tuesday 28 December. File of infections with epic swabs (over 1 million), never so many cases (more than 28 thousand in Lombardy) and tests since the beginning of the emergency, after the Christmas peak. The positivity rate is 7.6%. To see more than 200 victims, you have to go back to May 18th. Admissions: +366. Intensive care: +19
There are 78,313 the new cases of coronavirus in Italy (yesterday they are states 30,810, here the bulletin). Thus, the number of people who contracted the Sars-CoV-2 virus (including recovered and died) from beginning of the epidemic. The deaths today are 202 (yesterday there were 142), for a total of 136,955 victims since February 2020.
People recovered or discharged a total of 5,020,601 and 16,746 are those who emerged today from the Covid nightmare (yesterday 9,992) . The current positives – the subjects who have the virus – turn out to be in all 598.856 , equal to +61.352 compared to yesterday (+20.665 the day before).
Tampons and anxiousness
The total buffers (molecular and antigenic) were 1,034,677 , or 690,709 more than yesterday when there were 343,968. This is the epic of swabs : more than one million samples never processed (the previous highest figure was 969 thousand analyzes, dated December 25). While the positivity rate is 7.6% (the approximation of 7.568%); yesterday generation 8.9%. Here is the map of the contagion in Italy.
New epic of contagions in 24 hours with epic tampons: never so many since the beginning of the emergency. The “previous peak” of 54,762 newly infected, recorded on Christmas day, has been exceeded. And today is Tuesday. If the fluctuating curve behaves as it did in the past few weeks, it will continue to rise over the next few days, and then touch the “weekly high” between Friday and Saturday. “The Christmas effect on infections will be seen in the next few days,” says Fabio Ciciliano, a member of the CTS, recommending caution and rigor for the New Year. At the moment, there are 2.5 million Italians in isolation due to contacts with positives and for this reason the government is considering a reduction of the quarantine to avoid the “paralysis” of the country.
A regional level to have epic numbers as regards new infections are Lombardy, Veneto, Campania, Piedmont and Valle d’Aosta (details of all regions below). The largest number of newly infected is in Lombardy : here there are +28,795 cases thanks to 224,000 swabs (regional epic) with a rate of 12.8% (here the bulletin). Above 7,000 are: Piedmont which reports +7,933 cases with a rate of 11.1% calculated on 71,513 tests (here the bulletin), Veneto which identified +7,403 cases, also counting a recovery of positives in the past few days, with a 4.9% rate on 151,333 samples examined (here the bulletin) and Campania which reports +7,181 cases with a rate of 6.9% on 104,533 swabs.
The death toll is rising: 202 in the bulletin against 142 yesterday. This is the highest figure this month, exceeding 168 deaths on 23 December. To see over 200 people who have lost their lives – a similar number – you have to go back to May 18 (then 201 dead). Three regions / provinces with zero bereavement: Puglia, Molise and Valle d’Aosta. Attention: Lazio in the regional bulletin reported 19 deaths today, but from the difference in the totals found in the tables of the Ministry of Health (9,255 today minus 9,224 yesterday) they are 31. Followed by Veneto (29), Lombardy (28), Sicily (28 with previous history, as in the note).
The health system
The increase in hospitalizations continues in every voice. The beds occupied in the ordinary Covid wards are + 366 (yesterday +503), for a total of 10,089 hospitalized . The beds occupied in intensive care (TI) are + 19 (yesterday +37) – this is the balance between the people who left and those who entered IT -, bringing the total of the most seriously ill patients to 1,145 , with 119 admissions to resuscitation (yesterday 100).
Comparison with a year ago
A year ago, on December 28, 2020, the figures for hospitalizations and daily victims were very different: with 8,585 new cases there were 445 deaths.
At that time, in the Covid wards there were 23,932 hospitalized – now 10,000 – and 2,565 patients in intensive care – now less than half.
It is impossible to make a comparison between the percentages of positivity, as on January 15, 2021 this parameter changed with the introduction of antigen tests in the calculation.
