Italy says virus daily death toll under 100

ROME, May 18, 2020 (BSS/AFP) – The daily coronavirus death toll in
Italy dropped to 99 on Monday for the first time since early March,
the civil protection agency said, as the country largely lifted a
lockdown.

It was the lowest toll since March 9 — the day Prime Minister
Giuseppe Conte announced he was shutting down the country.
