In 17 Italian provinces the cases of Covid-19 have recorded an increase of at least 20% in the last seven days compared to the previous seven days. And among these there is also Viterbo. This is indicated by the analysis of the mathematician Giovanni Sebastiani, of the Institute for the Applications of Calculation M. Piconè, of the National Research Council (Cnr). After Trieste (130), Vibo Valentia (104), Forlì-Cesena and Pisa (39), Viterbo emerges with a percentage increase of 38.
Also yesterday this upward trend was confirmed by the numbers of the bulletin released by the ASL. 21 new cases have been discovered by the healthcare company: 9 in Viterbo, 2 in Bassano Romano, Graffignano, Montefiascone and Ronciglione, one in Bagnoregio, Celleno, Monterosi and Vasanello respectively. Compared to the summer phase when the surge in infections mainly concerned the age group between 18 and 30, mainly involving young people who have returned from vacation, this time – even if the numbers are not such as to make us talk about yet another wave – the virus runs above all within families. In fact, the majority of the new positives have family ties with other infected people. Yesterday, moreover, three minors were affected: the youngest is 6 years old and the oldest 9. One of them was infected by the positive teacher in the school he attends in a town in the province of Rome. Among the cases of yesterday, moreover, there is also an 80-year-old citizen of Graffignano who went to the Belcolle emergency room and was hospitalized in Infectious diseases.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the total number of people affected by Covid-19 in Tuscia has reached 17,247. Of these, 247 people are still positive, of which 11 are in need of hospital treatment (8 in Belcolle and 3 in Covid facilities outside the province). Also from the latest ASL report, it emerges that 5 people were negativized yesterday: one in Bagnoregio, Faleria, Montefiascone, Nepi and Viterbo. The number of negativized people rises to 16,540 and the number of deaths linked to the epidemic remains at 460.
