The Coronavirus infection curve in Sicily continues to point upwards: the island recorded 183 new cases out of 7,322 swabs processed, with a positive rate of 2.5%. In the last seven days, infections have increased by 36%, a clear sign that the trend is now reversed and it is now necessary to understand how far the new peak of this rise is. Two deaths registered in the last 24 hours, 78 recovered instead. The current positives are 3,650 (103 more than yesterday).
The hospital situation remains good at the moment: 129 hospitalized in the ordinary regime (-2 compared to yesterday) and 17 beds occupied in intensive care (-1) where there have been no new entries in the last 24 hours. This is the subdivision by provinces of the new cases: Caltanissetta 46, Ragusa 36, Enna 21, Catania 19, Messina and Syracuse 15, Palermo 12 and Trapani 12, Agrigento 7. The Nisseno area therefore remains the most affected: the incidence of the province is 120 cases per 100 thousand inhabitants, once again the highest in Italy.
Epidemic curve growing also in Italy. There are 1,391 new cases in the last 24 hours, against 1,400 yesterday but above all the 808 of last Sunday, confirming a clearly increasing weekly trend.

Intensive therapies are stable (yesterday -8) with 6 admissions of the day, and remain at 161 total, while hospitalizations drop by 13 units (yesterday -20), 1,134 in all.
The region with the most cases today is Lombardy with 250 new positives; followed by Sicily (+183), Campania (+169), Lazio (+164) and Veneto (+125). The total cases thus rise to 4,271,276.
