It does not tighten the gap between Lombardy and the rest of Italy, indeed it widens yet. I’m in the Region (237) three quarters of the new cases in Italy (321) today. They then register (from 10 upwards) 19 cases in Piedmont, 14 in Emilia Romagna, 17 in Liguria, 10 in Lazio (but 3 are from the past few days and counted only today) and none in the province of Bolzano and Valle d’Aosta, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Puglia, Marche, Umbria, Molise, Basilicata, Calabria, Sicily and Sardinia. Inpatients in intensive care fell to 400, the last time it was even three months ago (on March 5, when they were 351, they became the next day 462). And in Brescia, meanwhile, they have sequenced one “genetically very different” variant of Covid.

Mutation. He had announced it about ten days ago, but to make it official “we were waiting to compare ourselves with the most experienced colleagues in this field, now we have done it and finally we can report that we have obtained a highly reliable complete sequence“: that is, a variant of the coronavirus isolated in Brescia – explained Arnaldo Caruso, president of the Italian Society of Virology (and full professor of Microbiology and Clinical Microbiology at the University of Brescia) – not only “extremely less aggressive”, but also “genetically very different”, given that its RNA has “significant mutations” compared to that of Sars-CoV-2 sequenced in the worst months of the pandemic. “While the more aggressive ones take 2-3 days to exterminate all available target cells in vitro, this takes at least 6 days just to start attacking them“he explained.

Here is the daily update from the Department of Civil Protection.
