    The daily death toll from the Covid-19 in Italy fell below 100 for the first time in two months on Monday, according to official sources.

    Ninety-nine patients have died in the last 24 hours, according to the Protezione Civile, which deals with the prediction, prevention and management of emergency events.

    This is the lowest death toll since 9 March (97 deaths), when the country, hit hard by the outbreak of the new coronavirus, entered into containment. The new figures bring the total to 225,435 confirmed cases and 31,908 deaths as of Sunday.
