In Palermo red zone infections are growing and pressure on hospitals increases. In the last 24 hours, the entire province of Palermo is confirmed as the epicenter of the epidemic with 396 new cases, but an improvement compared to the almost 600 cases recorded on Easter Monday. But it is the capital that is worrying: in the week ending April 2, there was a surge of positives between the Sperone and Brancaccio.

The number of people hospitalized for Covid in the Palermo facilities as of April 2 are 400: 40.3% at the Cervello hospital and 28.3% at the Civic hospital.

The contagion map indicates a worsening compared to the previous report (0.56% of residents currently positive, against 0.44% on March 21). There are areas most affected such as Oreto, Brancaccio and Sperone but also the historic center as well as Zen and Arenella, two territories in which the mayor of Palermo had already foreseen restrictions such as the closure of local markets in the past few weeks.

In detail, in the first district there are 206 current positives (58 more), 609 instead those of the second (+160).
