There are 602 new cases of Coronavirus in Sicily on 18,758 swabs processed in the last 24 hours. Contagions on the decline again: the positivity rate drops to 3.2%. Yesterday it was at 4.7% with 878 cases. The hospitalizations are stable. This is what emerges from today’s bulletin released by the Ministry of Health.

There are 16 deaths, but also this time they do not refer only to the last 24 hours. As the Region specifies, in fact, 5 are from yesterday, 7 from 15 September, 1 from 14, 1 from 5 September; two more in August, respectively on 25 and 22.

The island is again first in terms of the number of new infections. In Sicily, the current positives are 21,777, of which 20,982 in home isolation (i.e. 96.3%), 696 hospitalized in the ordered wards (1 less than yesterday) and 99 in intensive care (same data as yesterday) with 6 new entries in the last 24 hours. The healed today are 1529.

At the provincial level, infections are decreasing or stable in all provinces. Messina is first for number of cases: 125. Following: Palermo 118, Trapani 91, Syracuse 87, Catania 75, Ragusa 54, Caltanissetta 23, Agrigento 19 and Enna 10.

The number of new infections also falls on a national level: in Italy there have been 4,552 in the last 24 hours, compared to 5,117 yesterday on 284,579 swabs, compared to 306,267 yesterday, so the positive rate drops from 1.7% yesterday at 1.6% today, 66 deaths (yesterday 67) for a total of 130,233 since the beginning of the pandemic.

There are 3,989 ordinary hospitalizations (29 fewer than yesterday), 525 patients in intensive care (six fewer), with 34 admissions on the day (yesterday 34).
