The country’s Civil Protection Agency said that 30,201 people had died of the virus, after 243 more fatalities between Thursday and Friday.
99,023 people have recovered from COVID-19, up 2,747. The number of coronavirus cases in Italy, including the deceased, the recovered, and those who are currently infected, rose by 1,327 to 217,185. Thursday’s rise was 1,401.
Officials said 1,168 coronavirus patients in Italy are in intensive care, 143 fewer than Thursday, as the downward trend continued.
It is still too early to see any effect on the numbers due to the loosening of lockdown measures on Monday, May 4th. Italy is the second European country, after Britain, to see more than 30,000 Covid-19 deaths.
