The number of new coronavirus cases in Italy is the lowest in nearly a fortnight, suggesting the country’s social distancing measures are working.

New infections have risen by 4,050 – the lowest daily number since March 18 – hitting a total 101,739 from a previous 97,689.
But the death toll has climbed by 812 to 11,591, the Civil Protection Agency said on Monday, reversing two days of declines in the daily rate. The World Health Organisation said the country should start to stabilize after two weeks.
Some 5,217 cases were recorded on Sunday and 5,974 on Saturday. Of those originally infected nationwide, 14,620 had fully recovered, compared to 13,030 the day before. There were 3,981 people in intensive care.
