Significant reduction in coronary deaths in Italy and Britain


After Spain and Wuhan, the news is promising from both Italy and Britain on Sunday, as in both countries, authorities have announced a major reduction in coronary deaths in the last 24 hours.

Specifically, in Italy, 260 people died and 2,324 new cases of coronary heart disease were reported.

The total number of incidents in the country reached 197,675. The death toll has risen to 26,644. Meanwhile, 64,928 people have been treated.

At the same time, 2,009 patients are in intensive care units and a total of 21,372 have been admitted to hospital. The housing restriction has been decided for 82,722.

The rate of transmission of the virus in the last 24 hours is slightly reduced (33 fewer cases) while, at the same time, there is an impressive reduction in deaths: this is the lowest number since the beginning of the pandemic.

According to the Italian Civil Protection, 155 fewer people have died than in the previous 24 hours. Patients in intensive care units for the 23rd day continue to decline, as do hospital admissions.

The total number of survivors is limited to 814 people compared to the previous twenty-four hours. There is optimism on the part of the competent authorities, since the total number of daily tests for the detection of the virus has increased.

Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte is expected to address a televised address on Sunday night on progress in the fight against the virus and in the effort to gradually return to everyday life and the official start of the “second phase” of so-called “coexistence with the virus “, from May 4.

In Britain

Another 413 people were added to the long list of victims of the new coronation in Britain on Sunday, bringing the total death toll to 20,732, Agriculture and Environment Minister George Justis said.

That number, the lowest since late March, marks a dramatic decline compared to yesterday, when 813 people were reported dead.

It should be noted, however, that the data reported only concern hospitals and, in addition, may include deaths that occurred several days earlier and not the last 24 hours.

According to Justis, 4,463 new cases were also recorded, bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 152,840.

England’s director of national health services (NHS), Steven Powis, noted that there was a clear downward trend in the number of nurses, mainly in London but also in Midlands and elsewhere. “This shows that our compliance with the social distance measure is proving beneficial, reducing transmission and the spread of the virus,” he said.
