Deaths from the COVID-19 epidemic in Italy increased by 165 on Sunday, compared with 194 the day before, the Civil Protection Agency said as the daily tally of new cases fell to 802 on Saturday from 1.083.

The total death toll since the outbreak came to light on Feb. 21 is now at 30,560 the agency said, the world's third-highest after the United States and Britain.

It was the lowest daily death toll since March 9, though the daily death count has tended to fall on Sundays in recent weeks of the epidemic only to rise again the day after.

For the first time since the beginning of March new cases have been under 1,000 with the total number of confirmed cases being 219,070, the third highest global tally behind those of the United States and Spain.

People registered as carrying the disease fell the previous day to 83,324 from 84,842.

On Sunday, 1,027 people were in intensive care, edging down from 1,034 on Saturday, sustaining a long-running decline. Of those who were originally infected, 105,186 were declared recovered a day earlier versus 103,031.

The agency said 1,676 million people were tested for the virus on Saturday versus 1,645 million out of a population of around 60 million.

On Monday, Italy began gradually lifting draconian restrictions imposed by the government in early March to contain the outbreak, allowing people to leave their homes freer and companies to reopen.
