Italy virus cases 74,386 from 69,176 but pace slows
Cases rise by about 8%
Death toll at 683 to total of 7503.
The number of cases today was 5,210 from 5,249 a day ago.
Social distancing is starting to yield some results. Note that the lockdown started March 8 (when there were about 5K cases) in several northern regions and March 9 nationwide. All restaurants were closed March 11 and factories closed on March 11.
It's starting to get to the point where it's so callous to report on these numbers. I feel so bad for the victims.
