Italy reports 50 percent increase in coronavirus cases in just one day




Italy reports 50 percent increase in coronavirus cases in just one day
By Justin Wise - 03/01/20 02:19 PM EST


Italian authorities said Sunday that the country has confirmed 1,694 cases of a potentially-deadly coronavirus, representing a 50-percent increase in the last 24 hours alone.

Officials added that five more people have died from the disease, bringing the total to 34 in the country, according to The Associated Press. Health officials reportedly noted that a marked increase in coronavirus cases was expected because it can take up to two weeks for containment measures to take effect, and because of Italy's sizable elderly population. Giovanni Rezza, director of the infective illness department at the National Health Institute, said that it would take up to 10 more days for the outbreak to become less severe.

The announcement arrived following a week in which U.S. health officials warned that a coronavirus outbreak within the country's border was likely inevitable, and as the Trump administration created a task force designed to combat its spread.
