Italy Reports Double Daily Number of Corona Infections
The number of corona infections in Italy rose in one day from 1402 to 221,216. On Monday, 744 new infections were reported, the authorities said.
The doubling is partly due to the figures from the hard-hit Lombardy that were passed on late.
The number of deaths registered in Italy as a result of the virus increased by 172 to 30,911. On Monday, there were still 179 deaths.
The number of patients with a corona in intensive care has been falling for several days in a row. Tuesday was 952 on the IC, Monday there were 999.
Italy, together with the United States, Spain, Great Britain and Russia, is one of the worst affected countries.
