MILAN (Reuters) – Italy reported 65 coronavirus-related deaths on Monday against 51 the day before, the health ministry said, while the daily tally of new infections fell to 1,273 from 2,275.

Patients in hospital with COVID-19 – not including those in intensive care – stood at 4,910 on Monday, down from 4,963 a day earlier.

There were 25 new admissions to intensive care units, up from 20 on Sunday. The total number of intensive care patients fell to 759 from a previous 774.

Some 84,567 tests for COVID-19 were carried out in the past day, compared with a previous 149,958, the health ministry said.
