After deaths in the country started to drop over the two previous days, fatalities in Italy rise by 743 on Tuesday

Fatalities in Italy due to COVID-19 have risen again by 743, after the numbers of deaths had started to drop lower in the previous two days, according to the Civil Protection Agency.

This new information has crushed hopes the pandemic easing after such a brutal time for the country.

The death toll rose by 743 on Tuesday, wich has been the second-highest number of deaths in a day since the outbreak emerged in northern regions of Italy on the 21st of February, after hopes were raised by the drop in numbers over the previous two days.

602 deaths were recorded on Monday, far lower than the current record of 793 deaths that happened last Saturday.

Italy has seen more deaths because of the coronavirus than any other country. The latest figures showing that 6,820 people have died from the virus in barely a month.

The total number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 reached 69,176 on Tuesday, but with Italy testing only people with severe symptoms, the head of the Civil Protection Agency, Angelo Borrelli, has said the true number of infected people was probably 10 times that number.

“A ratio of one certified case out of every 10 is credible,”

Following this news, Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte has raised fines for people leaving their homes to up to 3,000 euros (£2,724), from a previous maximum of 206 euros (£187).

He went on to say:

“Every one of us must play our part,” 

“If everyone obeys the rules, they don’t only protect themselves and their loved ones, but they will enable the whole national community to come out of this emergency.”
