Italy overtook the U.K. as the European country with the highest number of Covid-19 deaths, adding to pressure on Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte’s government as it seeks to prevent a flare-up of the contagion during the holiday season.
The country reported 484 virus-linked deaths on Sunday, raising the number of fatalities since the outbreak to 64,520. The U.K. registered 144 daily deaths, boosting the total to 64,170. Only the U.S., Brazil, India and Mexico have recorded more Covid deaths than Italy.
Italy has seen a slight decline in new cases, though the number of daily fatalities remains high, Giovanni Rezza, head of virus prevention at Italy’s Health Ministry, said on Dec. 8. “We know this is the last indicator to go down, after the contagion curve starts decreasing,” he added.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
