Italy adds 753 deaths from coronavirus in one day, the worst figure since April

Since Tuesday, in Italy 34 thousand 282 new infections have been registered and the total number of cases of infected by the virus is one million 272 thousand 352

Italy sumo 753 deaths by coronavirus in the last 24 hours, the worst data from the April 3 and slightly higher than Tuesday, which raised the total number of deaths to 47,217 since February, when the national emergency began, the Ministry of Health reported today.

Since Tuesday 34 thousand 282 new infections have been registered and the total number of cases of infected by the virus is one million 272 thousand 352.

24,169 people have been cured in the last 24 hours. Hospitalized patients continue to increase, numbering 33,504 nationwide (430 plus on the last day), and 3,670 patients are in intensive care units (up 58).

Of the more than 34 thousand new infected, Lombardy, the region most affected by the pandemic, has reported 7,633; and behind her they have located Campania (three thousand 657) and Piedmont (3,281), while the rest of the regions have had less than 3,000 new cases.

Experts appreciate a slight improvement in the contagion curve, but the high number of hospitalized and deceased calls not to lower our guard, while much of the country, both in the north and in the south, remains confined as a “red zone” by the high transmission of the virus.

From today, a new region, Abruzzo, in the center of the country, was confined after being classified as a “red zone” or high risk of contagion of COVID-19, and it is speculated that the next will be the southern Apulia.

Meanwhile, the Italian government is struggling to find a person in charge of health in Calabria –Which was intervened years ago–, after the third who was elected in just two weeks resigned on Tuesday a few hours after his appointment.

The Calabria region has few cases. This Wednesday it reported 936 new infected and since February it has only added 12 thousand six infections compared to the more than 340 thousand in Lombardy, but its hospital system is very precarious.
