151 doctors died in Italy

More than 150 doctors (151) died from the Covid-19 outbreak in Italy between March 11 and April 26, the National Federation of Surgical Orders (FNOMCEO) announced Monday on its website.

Italy has recorded 26,977 deaths, 333 more in the last 24 hours, for an absolute total (infected, cured and dead) of 199,414 cases of contamination. This number of deaths represents a slight rebound from the previous day. Indeed, this Sunday, the authorities had counted 260 deaths.

“The trend is nevertheless towards a gradual decline in deaths and infections,” said Silvio Brusaferro, president of the Higher Institute of Health (ISS) during the presentation of the report at the headquarters of civil protection.

The number of patients in intensive care continues to fall, to 1,956, as does the total number of patients, to 105,813. Lombardy remains the most affected region with 13,449 deaths for 73,479 cases, followed by Emilia-Romagna, 3,431 deaths for 24,662 cases, and Piedmont, 2,878 deaths for 25,098 cases.
