- 25 May 2020
Deaths from the COVID-19 epidemic in Italy climbed by 92 on Monday, against 50 the day before, the Civil Protection Agency said, while the daily tally of new cases dropped to just 300 from 531 on Sunday, APA reports citing Reuters.
Sunday’s daily death toll did not include fatalities from the worst-affected Lombardy region, due to technical problems.
It was not immediately clear if Lombardy’s deaths from Sunday had been added on Monday, when the region reported 34 new fatalities.
The number of confirmed cases amounts to 230,158, the sixth highest global tally behind those of the United States, Russia, Spain, Britain and Brazil.
People registered as currently carrying the illness fell on Monday to 55,300 from 56,594 the day before.
The agency said 2.219 million people had been tested for the virus as of Monday against 2.198 million on Sunday, out of a population of around 60 million.
