Italy may have 10 times higher cases than reported: Officials #50319

As of writing, there are at least 69,176 confirmed case of coronavirus in the country, as reported by CNN.

The collection of deaths adopted a an identical pattern with 602 virus-related deaths registered on Monday in comparison to 651 on Sunday and 793 on Saturday.

The number of coronavirus cases in the in the northern region of Lombardy, which includes Italy's financial capital Milan, increased by some 2,500 on Thursday, regional governor Attilio Fontana said.

Officially registered new infections rose just eight percent - the same as Monday, and the lowest level since Italy registered its first death on February 21.

Three more doctors died of coronavirus yesterday, in Bergamo, Foggia and Naples, the Italian Federation of Medical Professionals said, bringing the total to 37.

However, there was reassuring evidence that Italy's coronavirus infection rate was slowing.

The commissioner went on to explain that since the start of the emergency, intensive care hospital beds across Italy have increased by 64 percent - from 5,343 to 8,370 - while beds in pneumology and infectious diseases hospital wards have quadrupled, from 6,625 to 26,169. Data over the next several days will allow researchers to see "if the growth curve is really flattening", he remarked, adding that the actual number of infected people is probably about 10 times higher than the official county.

Nearby France and Spain have also implemented strict lockdowns as CCP virus cases in the two respective countries continue to rise.

'We are contacting the embassies, but I fear no more masks will be arriving from overseas, ' he said.

But Borrelli and other Italian medical officials have been extremely cautious to draw any definitive conclusions from the two-day drop. "We must stop this emergency from spreading to regions where its reach has so far been contained", Arcuri said.

On Tuesday, Italy reported 743 deaths.

The spike in numbers came as Italian Economy Minister Roberto Gualtieri on Tuesday said the government would ask parliament in the first weeks of April to authorise a new hike in this year's deficit levels.

After the latest figures, Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte tightened the fines for people who leave their homes to a maximum of 3,000 euros ($ 3,225), from a previous high of 206 euros. While speaking at a news conference, President of Lombardy, Attilio Fontana, said that the government has agreed that the military can be used to help enforce the lockdown.
