Seven more cases of coronavirus have been reported in Monaco, the Government said on Sunday evening. This is the highest daily total since the outbreak began. This brings the number of people affected by the coronavirus to 73, including three patients who are now cured. Fifteen people are hospitalised. Four of them are in intensive care.
A further 33 people have symptoms and are under observation. However, it should be noted that the Princess Grace Hospital serves a much wider area than the Principality itself, so many among these figures are resident in neighbouring municipalities.
Meanwhile, in the latest available figures, the number of people who died from coronavirus in France fell to 441 after a record 588 people were killed by the disease on the previous day. France’s Director General of Health Jerome Salomon said the death toll in hospitals and nursing homes since the start of the outbreak now stood at 7,560.
In Italy, the target of bringing down the reproductive number (R0) to 1 has been reached. Now the goal is to bring it below 1. Earlier in the epidemic, it was as high as 3. This value represents the average number of people to which a single infected person will transmit the virus. An epidemic with a reproductive number below 1 will gradually disappear, according to worldometer.
An estimated 30,000 lives have been saved as an effect of the lockdown measures, according to Istituto Superiore di Sanità (ISS).
