Speaking at a televised press conference, Civil Protection Department Chief Angelo Borrelli said Italy reported 5,249 new cases of coronavirus and 743 new deaths on Tuesday and that 54,030 people are now positive for the coronavirus, one month after the pandemic broke out in northern Italy on February 21, Xinhua reported. That followed 602 deaths on Monday, 650 on Sunday and a record of 793 on Saturday - the highest daily figure since the contagion came to light on February 21.

Borrelli said 54,030 people in Italy are now infected with the coronavirus.

Although still upward, the figures showed the daily rise in both the number of people testing positive and the number of deaths has been less marked for the second day in a row, Civil Protection Chief Angelo Borrelli told a press conference late Monday afternoon. It set a world record of 793 fatalities on Saturday.

Despite indications that deaths as a result from Covid-19 were slowing down over the weekend in Italy, with 651 deaths reported on Sunday (22nd March 2020) and 601 deaths reported on Monday (23rd March 2020), Tuesday's death count reversed all indications of a declining death toll.

The death toll in Italy continues to climb as authorities struggle to contain the virus. There were 3,204 people in intensive care against a previous 3,009.

A decree issued on Tuesday gave the government the power to extend the deadline to July 31.

Measures will be decided month by month as the situation evolves, said Conte, adding: "We hope to loosen the grip of the restrictive measures very soon".

On Tuesday 743 people died.

According to Goldman Sachs' forecast Tuesday, the Italian economy could shrink 11% this year.

The government has said a number of industrial sectors, including medical suppliers, must keep operating during the crisis, but there is growing unhappiness amongst some unions who think the list of strategic concerns is too wide.

However, there has been pushback as workers in the metal, chemical, textile, rubber-plastic and paper industries plan to go on strike on Wednesday. But Deputy Economy Minister Antonio Misiani told Reuters the coronavirus emergency made such restrictions redundant.
