COVID-19 integrated surveillance: key national data



Extended document

As of 28 February 2020, pursuant to order n. 640 of 27 February 2020, the Istituto Superiore di Sanità (ISS) has been coordinating a surveillance system integrating the microbiological and epidemiological data provided by all Regions and Autonomous Provinces (APs) and by the ISS SARS-CoV-2 national reference laboratory.


Infographics are published every day to provide information, in the form of charts, maps and tables, on the spread of the COVID-19 epidemic in Italy (over time and by location) and the characteristics of the reported cases (infographics are also available in English). Bulletins providing a more in-depth analysis of the information gathered are also published on Tuesdays and Fridays.


Please note: consolidation of the collected data is an ongoing process and, as would be expected in an emergency situation, some information may be incomplete or subject to change on a daily basis. In addition, especially in the Regions/APs where sustained local spread of the virus is being observed, there might be a few days’ delay between a diagnostic swab test being carried out and the case being reported on the dedicated platform.
