Coronavirus deaths :
Rome, Reuters, March 27-The Civil Defense Agency said on Friday that the death toll caused by the Italian coronavirus surged by 919 to 9,134, which could easily become the highest daily report since the epidemic on February 21.
Prior to last Friday’s figures, the largest daily toll record was on March 21, with 793 coronavirus deaths.
Of the 919 people who died in the past 24 hours, 712 died on Thursday, 683 died on Wednesday, 743 died on Tuesday, and 602 died on Monday.
Despite now having some of the toughest measures in the world, Italian authorities fumbled many of those steps early in the contagion — when it most mattered as they sought to preserve basic civil liberties as well as the economy. #italy #coviditaly https://t.co/7dzevWdik6

The total number of confirmed cases rose from the previous 80,539 to 86,498, making Italy’s total more than China’s at the end of last year when China had a coronavirus epidemic.
The United States has surpassed the total number of Chinese cases on Thursday.
In Italy, 10,950 people who were initially infected nationwide were fully recovered on Friday, compared with 10,361 the day before. The number of intensive care patients was 3,732, compared to 3,612.

The number of deaths reported in the worst-hit northern Lombardy region has increased sharply compared to the previous day and remains in critical condition, with a total of 5,402 deaths and 37,298 deaths.
By comparison, the number of deaths reported as of Thursday was 4,861, with 34,889.
The Civil Protection Agency said the cumulative death toll on Friday included the actual deaths of 50 people in the northern Piedmont region on Thursday, but its notice came too late to include official figures on March 26.
This caused some confusion, which meant that some media reported Friday’s daily statistics instead of 919.
