Italy's Lockdown Helps Reduce Coronavirus Spread

Italy's three-week stay-at-home lockdown order is due to be lifted on Friday.

But according to Reuters, it will likely be extended, even though the number of coronavirus cases and deaths are falling.

New covid-19 cases dropped on Sunday also dropped from 5,974 to 5,217.

Italy's mortality rate also dropped, from a record 919 deaths on Friday to 756 on Sunday.

On Sunday, government health adviser Luca Richelli said that the reduction in cases proves that the stay at home order has saved lives, and is a reason to continue it.

With a death toll of over 10,000, Business Insider says that Italy is one of the top countries being affected by coronavirus.
