Covid-19: Italy has over 221 dead and 11,068 new cases


Italy has recorded 221 deaths associated with covid-19 in the last 24 hours and 11,068 new contagions, the Ministry of Health said today, at a time when a controversy arose over the reopening of the ski slopes.

The new infections, in line with those of the last few weeks, in which the case curve has entered a stagnant phase, raise the total balance of positive cases recorded since the beginning of the pandemic a year ago, to 2,721,879.

The number of fatalities released today is the lowest since the 208 recorded last November 1st, but the balance sheet released on weekends is often incomplete and new data appears in the following days. The total death toll in the country is 93,577.

There are currently 20,534 hospitalized in hospitals, 28 less compared to Saturday, and 2,085 patients are in intensive care (23 more).

The regions that confirmed the most cases were Lombardia (1,987), the epicenter of the pandemic from the beginning, Emilia Romagna (1,323) and Campania (1,603).

Meanwhile, the vaccination plan continues and a total of 1,281,049 people have already received both doses of the vaccine.

It was in this context that today a controversy arose for the uncertainty regarding the reopening of the ski slopes from Monday.

The outgoing government led by Giuseppe Conte, who succeeded Mario Draghi as prime minister on Saturday, did not extend last Friday the ban on opening the runways, which expires on Monday.

Many of these facilities had already been prepared to start operating again, but the scientific commission advising the Government of Rome advised that reopening should not be allowed.

At this moment, it is still unknown whether the new executive will allow the reopening, a situation that must be clarified in the coming hours.

A pandemic covid-19 caused at least 2,394,541 deaths worldwide, resulting from more than 108.5 million cases of infection, according to a report made by the French agency AFP.
