In its daily bulletin, the Italian Civil Protection Agency also reports that the total number of contagions is up by

almost 15 percent to 47,021.

Recoveries are up by 15.5 percent to 5,129, while the number of intensive care patients, a closely watched figure

given the shortage of hospital beds, has risen by around 6 percent, to 2,655.

Lombardy, which surrounds Milan, remained the region worst hit by the outbreak, with more than 22,000 cases and

2,549 deaths. Lazio, the region that includes Rome, reports 1,008 cases and 43 deaths.
