Better numbers are obtained, going back over time, only between 28 and 30 September with 27 positives. In fact, already in early October the effects of the second wave were beginning to be seen with 55 cases in three days. Therefore, the improvement of the epidemiological situation continues on a little bit on all fronts, from new cases to positive indices, from the weekly incidence to the tampons required (less and less), from the recovered, who are now descending, to the conversion of hospitals (see another service on page 5) to the zeroing of Covid patients in intensive care at Spaziani.
The new positives are 18. The negativized 14 and the deceased 2.
