Coronavirus numbers falling steadily

There were 75 deaths related to COVID-19 in Italy over the last 24 hours, 33 of them in Lombardy, but only 355 new cases from 54,118 tests.

The pandemic continues to ease in the Peninsula, as the death toll climbed slightly to 33,415.

Once again, Lombardy is the epicentre, responsible for 33 of the 75 deaths, plus 210 of the total 355 new cases.

Only three regions had more than 15 new cases since yesterday: Lombardy (210), Piedmont (54) and Emilia-Romagna (31), while there were 11 regions with under 10 new cases and five with zero advance.

Considering the 355 positives came from 54,118 tests, that means just 0.15 per cent of those tested had COVID-19.

The R figure for the country is now 0.60, while in Lombardy alone it is 0.74, so still well below the 1.0 danger zone.

The number of patients in intensive care fell for the 56th day in a row, as 15 were moved out of the ICU, leaving just 435.

There are now 6,387 people in hospital suffering from coronavirus (-293), 435 in intensive care and 35,253 who are self-isolating at home with minor symptoms.

The total number of current active cases in Italy is now 42,075, a drop of 1,616 from yesterday.

There are 20,996 active cases in Lombardy, compared to 5,161 in Piedmont, 3,163 in Emilia-Romagna, 2,983 in Lazio, 1,500 in Veneto, 1,338 in Marche, 1,177 in Puglia and 1,111 in Tuscany.

All the other regions have under 1,000 people currently dealing with COVID-19.
