For the second day in a row, Italy has recorded fewer coronavirus related deaths and cases which has given Italian a small glimmer of hope.
Italy’s Civil Protection agency released data stating 700 fewer cases than the day-to-day increase of around 5,000 new cases reported Sunday. The number of deaths has also not risen by much.
The death toll from COVID-19 in Italy was of 602 on Monday (23 March), which is the smallest increase for four days.
Italians have been anxious seeing day-to-day figures for new cases and deaths go down as they enter the third week under a nationwide lockdown.
As of Monday, Italy has had a total of 59,138 virus cases compared to China’s 81,496.
