Daily report

All the processed data collected from various sources are published at the same time on the National Civil Protection Department's interactive:

  • Dashboard map
  • Daily data sheet (Covid-19 Cases update) with the aggregated number of daily cases from the regions/autonomous provinces;
  • Epidemiological-surveillance infographic (ISS Epidemiological Infographic) produced by the Higher Health Institute (ISS), with individual case data from positive tests diagnosed by the regions/autonomous provinces;

Weekly monitoring report Phase 2

For the management of Phase 2, a specific monitoring system on epidemiological data and response capacity of regional health services has been activated, introduced with the decree of the Ministry of Health of April 30, 2020. The monitoring is developed by a “control booth” consisting of the Ministry of Health, the Higher Institute of Health and the Regions.

Key points Covid-19 weekly monitoring, report from October 19-25, 2020

  • An analysis of the data for the period October 19-25, 2020 is reported. Due to the time between exposure to the pathogen and the development of symptoms, and between these and the diagnosis and subsequent notification, many of the cases reported this week are likely to have become infected at the beginning of October. The present report is therefore an epidemiological framework prior to the adoption of the restrictive measures introduced by the ministerial decree DPCM of 24 October 2020.
  • It is confirmed that the epidemic in Italy is rapidly worsening and is still globally compatible with a type 3 scenario but evolving towards a type 4 scenario. It should be noted that in some Italian Regions the transmission speed is already compatible with a type 4 scenario, with the risk of a short term hold up in health services. Therefore, a general critical situation is confirmed on the national territory, with a significant short-term impact in many Italian Regions/PAs.
  • In this week of monitoring, 11 Regions/PAs were classified as high risk of uncontrolled transmission of SARS¬-CoV-¬2.  Of these, 5 are considered at high risk, as a precautionary measure, as they cannot be reliably assessed, because surveillance data were not complete at the time of assessment. Another 8 regions/PAs are classified as moderate risk, with a high probability of progress to high risk in the coming month.
  • This week there has been a further strong increase in cases, which brings the cumulative incidence (ISS flow data) in the last 14 days to 279.72 per 100,000 inhabitants, in the period 12/10-¬-25/10 (vs 146.18 per 100,000 inhabitants in the period 5/10-¬-18/10). In the same period, the number of symptomatic cases doubled: from 27,117 (period 5/10-¬-18/10) to 54,377 (period 12/10-¬-25/10).  The increase in cases is widespread throughout the country, with all Regions/PPAA reporting an increase in the number of diagnosed cases, compared to the previous week (MdS flow).
  • In the period 08 - 21 October 2020, the Rt calculated on symptomatic cases was equal to 1.70 (95%CI: 1.49 - 1.85). There are Rt values higher than 1.25 in most Italian Regions/Pas, with values higher than 1.5 in different Regions/PAs. For details on how to calculate and interpret the Rt reported, please refer to the detailed information available on the Higher Institute of Health website.
  • It should be noted that alerts on the resilience of territorial health services have been reported in almost all Regions/PPAA. In addition
    • There was a deterioration in the quality of data reported to the integrated surveillance system, both for timeliness (delay in reporting cases reported to the surveillance system on aggregate data coordinated by the Ministry of Health) and for completeness. This is a further critical element of resilience and may lead to an underestimation of transmission speed and risk.
    • The percentage of cases detected through contact tracing activities continued to drop (19.2%) while an increase in the percentage of cases detected for the appearance of symptoms continued to be observed (32.6%). The percentage of cases detected through screening activities remained relatively stable (28.3%) while the increase (19.9%) in the percentage of cases in which the reason for the diagnostic test was not reported is confirmed.
    • The number of cases not attributable to known transmission chains continued to increase (49,511 cases this week vs. 23,018 the previous week), exceeding 80% of new cases reported in some Regions/PAs.

This week, for the first time, the critical threshold of employment in medical areas (40%) has been reported to have been exceeded in some territories, and there is a high probability that 15 Regions/PPAA will exceed the critical thresholds of intensive care and/or medical areas in the coming month. Overall, the number of people admitted to intensive care has risen from 750 (18/10) to 1,208 (25/10); while the number of people admitted to medical areas has risen from 7,131 (18/10) to 12,006 (25/10).

Please refer to

The  ISS and ISTAT report of July 16, shows that on  May 25, 2020, Covid-19 was the direct cause of death in 89% of deaths of people who tested positive for Sars-CoV-2, while for the remaining 11% the causes of death were cardiovascular disease (4.6%), cancer (2.4%), respiratory system diseases (1%), diabetes (0.6%), dementia and digestive diseases (0.6% and 0.5% respectively).

The latest ISS update shows an average age 80 years in deceased patients and an average of 3.4 pre-existing diseases.
