The number of cases this Friday is similar to that of the last days, when slightly more than 400 positives were reported and remains in the same range as two weeks ago, which is between 400 and 614 infected daily, beyond the end of week that fewer cases are always reported because there are also fewer tests. But at the same time it is lower than the previous Fridays, which represents a positive figure and which begins to mark at least one trend that the curve has lowered.
Thus, for example, while this Friday there were 451 cases, on Friday, November 13, 469 had been reported, on Friday, November 6, they were 626 positive and a week before there were 760 infections, that is, in three weeks the cases of coronavirus were falling considerably.
And if we extend this spectrum to the last four weeks, it must be said that while in the week from Monday, October 19 to Sunday, October 25, 6,446 infected were reported, between Monday, October 26 to Sunday, November 1 there were 4,601, in that of Monday November 2 to Sunday 8 there were 3,411 and in the last 3,058 infections were registered, so from one week to the next there was a gradual reduction.
Following this line, in the last 28 days there were more people recovered from Covid (22,275) than those who were infected in the city (19,1484). Before that there was, sporadically, one day when those recovered were more than contagions, but in general, more patients were reported than those who were cured of the virus.
The data that contrasts sharply with this, and beyond the fact that a certain amount of loss in the contagion curve is beginning to be noticed, is that the number of deaths from Covid continues to be high, since the province notified the death of 17 people this Friday, 9 of which correspond to the city of Rosario. The total number of fatalities from coronavirus in Santa Fe amounts to 1,973 people, and in Rosario there are already 1,034, with a fatality rate of 1.79%.
There are a total of 11,870 active patients, while there are 122,153 recovered patients.
There are 191 people admitted to the Intensive Care Unit in provincial hospitals, 22 of whom receive mechanical respiratory assistance.
There are 346 patients in the general ward
In the province, 246,112 notifications were registered, of which 94,347 were discarded.

The encouraging data is that this Friday 464 patients were recovered, totaling 53,120 since the beginning of the pandemic.
On the other hand, and as it does every Friday, the municipality, through the Ministry of Public Health, updated the epidemiological situation in Rosario: as of this Thursday there are 3,521 active cases and 52,656 have already been recovered, registering a recovery percentage of 92% in Rosario.
These data come from the weekly report carried out by the municipal Public Health Secretariat where it is also observed that the highest percentage of contagion is sustained in the age group of 30 to 44 years. It is followed by the group between 15 to 29, then from 45 to 59, 60 to 74, and finally 75 years and over.
