More than 900 deaths in a day in Italy

Italy has reported 969 new COVID-19 deaths, its highest daily number in the outbreak so far.

Total number of effected people are 86,490 and 9,134 people have now died from the virus in the country.

#WHO chief Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said a “chronic global shortage” of protective equipment was one of the “most urgent threats” to the ability to save lives.

Italy is the worst-affected in Europe. Almost everything has been closed and people has been ordered to stay at home. Law enforcement authorities are making sure no one goes out of the house except emergency need.

Friday 27-3-2020 authorities warned that restrictions were likely to be extended beyond 3 April.
