Italy’s coronavirus death toll increased by 837 on Tuesday, bringing the total to 12,428, according to the country’s health officials. The grim news marks a slight increase from the day before when they reported 812 deaths.

Italian health officials also reported 4,053 new cases, which is the same as the day before, suggesting that the virus’s spread may be beginning to plateau.
As of Tuesday afternoon, Italy has confirmed over 105,000 cases of the virus, making it the country with the second-highest reported cases, behind the U.S.
The country is shut down, with Italians living under stringent restrictions. The government has said those rules will extend past their original deadline, meaning Italians will celebrate Easter from their homes.
