Italy's daily coronavirus death toll stable, new cases climb
Deaths from the COVID-19 epidemic in Italy climbed by 172 on Tuesday, against 179 the day before, the Civil Protection Agency said, but the daily tally of new cases doubled to 1,402 from 744 on Monday. However, the rise in new cases was partly due to late reporting by the hard-hit Lombardy region, which said it had found 419 infections from previous weeks that it had not logged. The total death toll since the outbreak came to light on Feb. 21 now stands at 30,911 the agency said, the third highest in the world after those of the United States and Britain.
