Deaths from the COVID-19 epidemic in Italy have risen by 575, up from 525 the day before, while the number of new cases declined slightly to 3493 from a previous 3786. The daily tallies of deaths and cases on Friday extend the broadly stable situation in place over the last 12 days. This plateau is down considerably from peaks reached around the end of March, but the downtrend has not proceeded as was widely hoped in a country that has been in lockdown for almost six weeks. The total death toll since the outbreak came to light on February 21 rose to 22,745, the Civil Protection Agency said, the second highest in the world after that of the United States. The number of officially confirmed cases climbed to 172,434 the third highest global tally behind those of the United States and Spain. There were 2812 people in intensive care on Friday against 2936 on Thursday - a 14th consecutive daily decline. Of those originally infected, 42,727 were declared recovered against 40,164 a day earlier. Australian Associated Press
