(ANSA) – ROME, FEB 25 – Italian COVID cases have risen by 10%

weeks, it said.
    Over the last week, GIMBE said, “there has been an inversion in
the trend which edges on 10% at a national level, a mark of the
rapid spread of more contagious variants.
    The situation is particularly concerning in 41 provinces where
the rise in new cases is over 20%.

rise.
