According to the European Union News Agency quoted by the European Network, the data of the epidemic report of the Italian Ministry of Emergency Civil Defense on the 20th showed that by 18:00 on the 20th, the total number of confirmed cases nationwide had increased to 13,45,767, 48,569 deaths and 52,02 cured cases.
In the past 24 hours, 37,242 new confirmed cases and 699 deaths have occurred. This is the 10 consecutive day that Italy has more than 500 new deaths.
According to reports, on the 20th local time, Italian Health Minister Roberto Speranza said that the regional hierarchical epidemic prevention measures taken by the government have begun to bear fruit, and Lombardy, a high-risk area of the red epidemic, has performed particularly well, and the national average viral infection index Rt value has fallen.
To 1.18. In order to further consolidate the achievements of epidemic prevention, the Ministry of Health decided that the risk levels in Lombardy, Calabria and other high-risk areas for epidemics will be extended to December 3.
Silvio Brusaferro, president of the Italian National Health Institute, said at a regular press conference on the epidemic hosted by the Ministry of Emergency Civil Defense that although the risk of the epidemic is still high, it still a long way to reach the saturation of hospital patients. I believe that as the epidemic curve remains smooth in recent days, the number of new confirmed cases will soon decline significantly.
Brusifero pointed out that the average number of infected people per 100,000 residents this week is about 351, and there are obvious differences between regions. In some areas, the proportion of infections has been reduced to double digits, but the performance of the RT infection index is not optimistic. Therefore. We must bear in mind the lessons of blindly lifting the ban on the tourism market in summer, and continue to take strict epidemic prevention measures to reduce the RT infection index below 1.
