Italy coronavirus cases near 6,000

Italy’s loss of life toll from the novel coronavirus rose by 36 to 233 on Saturday whereas the variety of infections shot up by a single-day report of 1,247 to hit 5,883.

Italy has recorded probably the most deaths of any nation’s exterior China and the third-most COVID-19 infections after China and South Korea.

Official figures confirmed the variety of folks receiving intensive care in hospitals jumped to 567 from 462 on Friday.

The Italian authorities have been watching intently to see if cases are spreading from the richer north to the poorer south, which has fewer medical sources.

All 22 Italian areas have now registered cases and one new loss of life was reported Friday within the Lazio area that features Rome and its outskirts.

The southeastern area of Puglia across the metropolis of Bari recorded its second loss of life on Saturday.

Italy’s civil safety service additionally revealed that the northern Lombardy area round Milan that has seen nicely over half of all infections had begun “experiencing difficulties with the (number of) beds available in hospitals”.

“We have beds available in other regions to help Lombardy,” civil safety service chief Angelo Berrelli instructed reporters.
