Italy, the center of the pandemic last month, is emerging from its worst days, when some hospitals in the north were overwhelmed with new patients. Experts say a steady decrease in hospitalizations and deaths in recent weeks is a “trustworthy” trend. The number of new cases started to plateau in the first week of April, though thousands of new infections continue to be reported every day.

A handful of commercial businesses will reopen on Tuesday, including bookstores and stationery shops. But the country’s broader lockdown, which bans all non-essential movement across the country, is expected to remain in place until at least May 3. Controls have intensified since the lockdown was imposed last month — parks are closed and all outdoor activities are now heavily restricted — and fines are steep.

A task force that will advise the government on the gradual reopening of the country was formed over the weekend. Officials in Lombardy, a small town in the north that recorded the country’s first confirmed case on February 20, have stated that they will not yet reopen any commercial business.

Daily data at the regional and provincial level is provided by the Italian Department of Civil Protection in Italian and English. The data includes the number of confirmed cases, deaths, recoveries, hospitalized patients and the number of people in intensive care. The data on the number of “swabs” undertaken each day reflects the number of tests performed, not the number of people tested.

The head of Italy’s Civil Protection agency estimated that the number of cases could be as much as ten times higher than the current figure. In the hardest-hit areas, testing tends to be limited to patients admitted to a hospital, and medical workers have effectively stopped performing post-mortem swabs on patients who die at home.

Where You Can Find More Information

Italy, the unfortunate vanguard of Western democracies grappling with the virus, is now weighing different options on how to reopen the country, and having the right antibodies might play a role in determining who gets to work and who does not.
