Italy reported 601 new deaths from the coronavirus on Monday, posting a decline for a second day, as the country enters its third week of lockdown measures created to keep the spread of the disease in check.

The numbers are up from an official tally on Monday evening of 50,418 active infections, 6,077 deaths, and 7,432 recoveries.

Follow live updates on coronavirus " A ratio of one certified case out of every 10 is credible", Angelo Borrelli, the head of the Civil Protection Agency, told La Repubblica newspaper, indicating he believed as many as 640,000 people could have been infected in the country.

"We need more consecutive results to confirm the trend, to be more certain that we are in a favourable situation.", Brusaferro said.

Moreover, among those infected with the Wuhan virus in Italy, 4,824 are healthcare professionals - meaning that roughly one in ten of the confirmed coronavirus cases in Italy are people who work in hospitals. There were 3,204 people in intensive care against a previous 3,009.

The total number of confirmed cases in Italy rose with an 8.2 % increase in line with Monday's growth rate from a previous 63,927 to 69,176, according to the Agency.

Some 3,780 new active coronavirus infections were registered on Monday, bringing the total active cases to 50,418 since the pandemic first broke out in the northern regions of the country on February 21.

As of yesterday (24th March 2020), over 743 deaths were reported in Italy, bringing the national total now to 6,820 deaths as a result of Covid-19. On Monday, 3,780 tested positive and 3,957 contracted the virus on Sunday.

Echoing the warning from Brusaferro, Gallera said it was still too early to claim the pandemic was really slowing down, and he strongly appealed to people to keep respecting all restrictions implemented since a national lockdown went into effect on March 10.

Officials of the World Health Organization have said they expect the peak of contagions in Italy to be reached by next week.

"The agency's Secretary General told me that - following a first analysis of available data on Avigan, the (AIFA) technical-scientific committee is developing a testing and research program to assess the impact of the drug in the initial phases of the disease", Ansa news agency quoted the minister as saying.
