Italy has offically extended it’s lockdown period until April 12 (Easter) but there is still hope as the country has been recently experiencing a decline in COVID-19 cases.
As of March 30th, 1,648 new cases were reported which is an improvement from the previous day (March 29) of 3,815 cases.
The amount of deaths however rose again with 812 deaths reported, compared to 756 deaths the day before.
Italy still believes that this crisis will continue on for weeks ahead and the governor of Puglia mentioned that many places will still remain under strict rules until May.
Italians have been living in quarantine for three weeks now with shops, bars and restaurants closed down. Residents are not allowed to leave their homes unless it is essential.
