Coronavirus, 1,282 new positives in Sicily: contagion rate of 12.4%. Yellow on the quick pads

This time the numbers should be exact but in the Sicilian report on Coronavirus infections even today some figures are missing. A warning in the tables reads “Today it was not possible to detect the data of the swabs with antigen test”, therefore the number of rapid swabs is not available. In addition, the provincial data have been corrected and therefore from the screens of the Ministry of Health and Civil Protection for today it is not possible to obtain the real increase in positives but only the difference between the new cases today and those registered in more by mistake yesterday.

But let’s go to the data, from the 10,305 molecular swabs processed in the last 24 hours 1,282 new positives emerged. The contagion rate (the ratio between new cases and tampons) rises from 5.7 percent calculated as an average yesterday to 12.4 percent. There were 19 deaths (yesterday 21 referred to two days). Two data that are certainly very worrying. The hospitalized people total 1,039, eight more than yesterday. The places occupied in intrensive therapy rose from 140 to 143 with 6 new entrants. The healed were 82 and so the currently positive are 19,870 (1,181 more than yesterday). In isolation there are 18,831 people but it is not possible, given yesterday’s errors, to calculate the true variation. That’s 58 less than yesterday’s miscalculations.
