It seems that the curve has begun its descent. In fact, 684 new Covid cases in Sicily out of 21,800 processed swabs, with the positivity rate falling to 3.1%. Yesterday there were 618 but with almost half of the tampons. All the other parameters relating to the pandemic are also down.
In detail, 772 patients are hospitalized in the ordinary regime (-20 compared to yesterday), while 99 people remain in intensive care (-4) with 5 new admissions. The current positives (i.e. the number of people who currently have the virus) also decrease, becoming 25,504 (-510). This is due to the effect of the recovered (1,170) but also of the deaths: those reported today by the Region are 24, but 4 are attributable to yesterday, 10 to 12 September, 6 to 11, 2 to 10 and 2 to 7 September.
