After a few days of decline, the number of new cases in Italy have increased again. Wednesday's rise in the number of dead were 683, while on Tuesday the rise was 743. The number of confirmed cases in the US has however surpassed China and Italy to become the largest outbreak in the world.

    Some 4 492 people in just 24 hours were infected in Italy while the day before there were 3 491 new cases. The number of victims has also increased. After four days going down, the curve of contagions in Italy has risen, and including the deceased and the recovered, it stands at 80 539.

    In Lombardy there are 10 681 people hospitalized: they are 655 more than the day before, following on the previous 315. The ICU data , with 1 263 patients, show 27 more than the day before.

    The Lombardy Region, according to Governor Attilio Fontana and Health Minister Speranza, had nevertheless rigorously followed the protocols dictated by the ISS and by the scientific body that collaborates with the ministry.

    There is difficulty in reconstructing the events that led to this situation, “explained the deputy director of WHO, Ranieri Guerra, adding that “it is essential to continue with home isolation”.

    The data was reported by Agostino Miozzo, director of the Department of Civil Protection, and Luigi D’Angelo, director of emergency operations.

    On the topic of masks Miozzo said images of cyclists who use FFP3 masks intended for healthcare professionals, should not be wasted. “The use of masks must be assigned to those in absolute need, they are a precious commodity, I ask everyone not to misuse them, I urge you not to waste these devices,” said Miozzo.

    He added that an appeal to “recruit nurses will be sent out in Lombardy and in the regions where we will need them, as was done for physicians”. The notice was posted online during the night.

    The cities with the highest number of infections remain Bergamo with 7 458 and Brescia with 6 931. The figure of the province of Milan is striking, with 6 922 positive cases, 848 more in a day, more than double from the previous day.

    The federation of family doctors of Bergamo believes that the number of patients infected with the new Coronavirus is much higher than the official data show.

    The confirmation, yet another, comes from the FIMMG: “We are sure that the official data do not correspond to reality. From our estimates currently in our province about 70 000 citizens of Bergamo are probably infected with Coronavirus.”

    The FIMMG argued that it was “not very useful to make assumptions on the basis of the results of swabs, when the swabs are in fact reserved almost exclusively for the most critical in hospitals”.

    And while the increase has doubled in a day, this should be the effect of the greater number of swabs made, said Professor Federico Perno of the Niguarda hospital in Milan.

    Milan city council on Thursday ordered cremations to halt starting March 29 for people who died in, but were not resident in, the northern Italian city, due to a “saturation” of the facility.

    On March 17, the American Medical Association’s Journal, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), published an Italian study on mortality in relation to sex and age groups among those who died after falling ill with Covid-19. The study also presents the different percentages of how severe the symptoms become for those infected.

    The study showed, among other things, that 59,8 percent of the deceased were men and 40,2 percent were women. The different rate between men and women has not yet been explained however.

    The number of deaths linked to the Coronavirus passed 1 000 in the US, according NBC News. Globally, the death toll has risen to 20 000, with nearly half a million reported cases.

    How safe are jabs if vaccinated still get infected and transmit Covid-19?

    The aggressive promotion of Covid vaccine passports and draconian vaccine mandates by globalists are not going as smoothly as they had hoped. Vaccinated people can still get infected and transmit disease, so this clearly eliminates the argument that the unvaccinated bring harm to others.
