Yesterday it was 2.29% (lowest rate recorded), while today it is 2.83%. Here too a very slight increase, which is not a major problem.
Good news from hospitals
Overcrowded hospitals are one of the biggest problems created by this epidemic. For a few days now, huge drops in the total number of people in intensive care have been recorded. Even today the positive trend continues, with 99 more free places. Even the figure regarding the total number of hospitalized patients with symptoms is continuously decreasing, 233 fewer patients!

The most important thing now is don’t give up, We have to keep it up. We stay at home and respect the rules, with the awareness of moving on to the famous “step 2” as soon as possible.
Death tool is falling gradually, but unfortunately is still too high. Today, 542 victims are registered, (-62 compared to yesterday). This figure will be the last one to decrease, since it is a consequence of what has been occurring in the previous weeks.
