Italy new virus cases 2972 vs 3153 a day ago

The latest case numbers from Italy

  • Prior was 3153
  • 602 new deaths vs 556 a day ago (431 two days ago)
  • Total cases now 162,488 and 21,067 deaths

The new cases are the lowest in a month but deaths remain stubbornly high. That’s normal because deaths are a lagging indicator. What’s troubling is that Italy has been in a total lockdown for nearly 5 weeks and we’re still getting around 3000 cases a day.
