Italy today reported less than 3,000 new coronavirus infections for the 1st time. While the number of cases in the coronavirus decreased, the death tally rose for a 2nd consecutive day by 602, up from 566 the day before.

Rome ordered the opening of a handful of stores including bookshops and stationery shops in a trial to see how social distancing measures can work after the lockdown.
However, some regions have chosen not to take full advantage. Bookshops will not open for another week in Rome and will stay closed altogether in Lombardy.
The total death toll since the outbreak rose to 21,067, the Civil Protection Agency said, the 2nd highest in the world after that of the United States.
