The total death toll rose to 18,279

Deaths from the Covid-19 epidemic in Italy rose by 610 on Thursday, up from 542 the day before, and the number of new cases also came in higher at 4,204 from a previous 3,836.

The daily tally of cases was the highest since April 5, and comes as a disappointment to a country in lockdown since March 9, anxious for clear signs that the illness is in retreat.

The total death toll since the outbreak came to light on February 21 rose to 18,279, the Civil Protection Agency said, the highest in the world.

The number of confirmed cases climbed to 143,626, the third highest global tally behind those of the United States and Spain.

There were 3,605 people in intensive care on Thursday against 3,693 on Wednesday — a sixth consecutive daily decline offering some good news despite the climb in new cases and fatalities.

Of those originally infected, 28,470 were declared recovered against 26,491 a day earlier.

The fast spreading coronavirus, which was first reported in China's Wuhan, has claimed above 95,700 lives and infected more than 1,603,700 people across the world till date, according to Worldometers.

As many as 356,655 people have recovered from Covid-19, a disease caused by a new strain of coronavirus, which has spread to 209 countries and territories across the world.
