In Italy, fresh data was provided on the number of people infected with COVID-19 and who died from the disease caused by the coronavirus. During the day, the number of infected people in the country increased by more than two thousand, and the number of deaths- by almost 200 people, according to La Repubblica.
The number of infected people increased by 2,076 compared to yesterday, and the total number of infected people, including those who were injured and recovered, reached 12,462. During the day, 196 people died, just since the beginning of the epidemic in the country — 827, said the head of the civil defense service of Italy Angelo Borrelli.
Recall that since March 10, restrictive measures have been introduced throughout Italy to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Now, movement around the country is possible only if there are good reasons: for work or health reasons. The country banned all mass events, including the national football championship, and closed schools and universities. The departure of Italians abroad will not be restricted, but “control over those entering Italy will continue.” Restrictive measures have been taken until April 3.
On March 11, the World Health Organization declared a coronavirus pandemic in the world.
