Could the reduced rate in cases in Italy show that things are improving?

Italy has shown reduced rates in cases of the coronavirus as more people are recovering in the country

A reduced rate of the coronavirus is being shown, after the virus was established early on in Italy, where reported deaths have risen above those fatalities that were recorded in China, where the city of Wuhan is now starting to recover from the virus.

The number of new cases of COVID-19 dropped by 771 on Monday, showing a reduced rate in cases from the day before.

Italy had less time to prepare than the UK, and so the virus may have present in the country long before it was detected, the country also has many more elderly people who are dependant on family and friends.

Italy recorded 4,789 new cases of coronavirus on Monday, compared with 5,560 new cases on Sunday, and on the same day, the man known in Italy as Patient No. 1, a 38-year-old man, was released from hospital after a month of being in a critically-ill condition.

Giulio Gallera, the top health official in Italy’s northern region of Lombardy, which has been hardest hit by the outbreak, told reporters on Monday:

“Today is perhaps the first positive day we have had in this hard, very tough month. It is not the time to sing victory, but we are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel.”

“We need more consecutive results to confirm the trend, to be more certain that we are in a favorable situation.”
