Italy Tests Over A Million People for Coronavirus

Italy reveals it has tested more than a million people for coronavirus as it sees a fall in its daily cases to 2,646, and the total number of infections drops again.

Deaths from coronavirus in Italy climbed by 464 on Thursday, but the daily tally of new infections declined to 2,646 from 3,370 on Wednesday.

As many as 40 percent of those new cases were in the hard-hit Lombardy region where the first domestically transmitted case was confirmed just over two months ago.

The total official death toll now stands at 25,549. Italy has the second-highest death toll in the world after that of the United States.

These new figures came as data on the number of tests carried out was revealed for the first time.
