There are 1,409 new positive cases at Covid in Lombardy compared to 149,600 swabs performed within 24 hours. The positivity rate is 0.9%, down from 1.3% yesterday.

The pressure on Lombard hospitals is growing: the number of people hospitalized in intensive care is 51, 1 more than yesterday, while the number of people hospitalized in the medical area increased by 64, for a total of 524. This number brings us back to mid-June.

Five deaths registered in Lombardy in the last 24 hours.

These are the cases by province: Milan 488, Bergamo 82, Brescia 173, Como 65, Cremona 62, Lecco 28, Lodi 41, Mantua 65, Monza and Brianza 172, Pavia 54, Sondrio 14, Varese 121.

Where are we in relation to the yellow zone

According to the risk parameters set by the Covid decree law – to be clear, the one who extended the state of emergency until 31 December 2021 and introduced the obligation of a Green pass to enter indoor restaurants from 6 August -, the yellow zone clicks with an incidence of new positives per 100 thousand inhabitants exceeding 50. The figure for today, November 16, 2021, says that in Lombardy we are at 73.9.

On the other hand, the picture of admissions is different: the yellow zone is triggered with an occupation of beds of 10% for intensive care and 15% for medical areas. Lombardy today is far from those thresholds, but the 1% jump in a single day in the ordinary departments requires maintaining maximum attention.

In Italy

There are 7,698 Covid test positives identified in the last 24 hours in Italy, according to data from the Ministry of Health, yesterday they were 5,144. On the other hand, there are 74 victims in one day. Yesterday it had been 44.

There are 684,710 molecular and antigenic swabs for the coronavirus carried out in the last 24 hours in Italy, according to data from the Ministry of Health. Yesterday there were 248,825. The positivity rate is 1.1%, down from 2% yesterday. On the other hand, there are 481 patients in intensive care in Italy, 6 more than yesterday. Daily admissions are 41. Patients with symptoms in ordinary wards are 3,970, or 162 more than yesterday.
