Italy’s overall fight to contain the spread of the coronavirus continued to show results, with the number of deaths, intensive-care cases, and new infections all trending downward, based on information from the Ministry of Health and the country’s Civil Protection Department on Sunday.

Italy’s daily death toll continued to fall as a further 433 people had died of COVID-19 in the past 24 hours, raising the country’s death toll to 23,660, official data showed. Sunday’s number of new deaths was the smallest in a week. It also represented the fourth time in five days that the number of victims of the global pandemic fell in Italy, Xinhua reported. In a social media post uploaded late on Saturday, Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said the national quarantine, first put into place on March 10, could be partially lifted starting May 4, the day after the current lockdown deadline.
Conte said the easing of protection measures would be “based on a well-articulated program that reconciles the protection of citizens’ health and the need for economic production.”
