As the COVID-19 disease spreads globally, countries like Italy, Iran and Spain are leading the world in new coronavirus cases.
Italy began a massive quarantine of the country’s northern Lombardy region early in March and has since extended this lockdown to the entire country. Many people have been ordered to stay home unless commuting to work is absolutely essential, and no one is allowed to leave the country.
Total cases of COVID-19 have quickly increased in Italy, with a peak of 105,792 as of March 31. Daily new cases, however, have started to steadily drop, with 4,053 new cases reported on March 31. The death toll in the country has surpassed 10,000 to reach 12,428 as of March 31, the highest toll of any country in the world. Overall, the recovery rate is reported at 55.8 percent of all cases in Italy as of March 31.
