Italy decreases its contagion curve
The number of tests carried out in the country has increased in recent days. 93,000 people have been evaluated since last Friday. New cases of contagion have decreased by 60%.
The most affected place has been Lombardy. For this reason, his health adviser wanted to say at a press conference that:
“We can say that it is the first positive day. This is not the time to sing victory, but we finally see a light at the bottom of the tunnel. We are already exceeding the peak of the so-called contagion curve. ”
Cases have decreased from 3,900 on Sunday to 3,700 on Tuesday. The national rate has dropped, with 5.72% less of infections.
The number of deaths has also decreased. In the last 24 hours, 601 people have died. However, the weekend was disastrous: 651 on Sunday and 800 on Saturday.
The most exposed at present are the toilets. According to a study carried out by the Gimbe Foundation Based on data from the Higher Institute of Health, at the start of the pandemic 4,800 health workers were infected. In other words, 9% of the total personnel registered in the country.
And help came from Russia
Putin decided to send 14 planes from your Air Force. Within them, military and medical personnel traveled to help Italy against COVID-19. In total, almost 100 specialists and a specialized disinfection team.

In America, infections are starting. Therefore, it is recommended to learn from the situation in Europe and maintain security measures to avoid a greater evil.
