In Italy, new Coronavirus infections have dropped to lowest point in crisis as officials registered just eight percent rise on Tuesday.
This is the lowest level since Italy registered its first death on February 21. The new infections had been running at as high as 50 percent at the start of March.
The decline in the new cases is an evidence that the painful lockdown is working. Other nations has also started to apply the lockdown at great economic cost.
The harshest restrictions are theoretically due to expire this evening. Although the government is all but certain to extend them in some form for weeks or even months.
