The Covid-19 has killed more people in Italy than in any other country, including China where the virus originated.
Deaths in Italy rose by 427 in a day and now stands at 3,405, which is more than the figure in China.
Although questions surround the figure for China, the country has 3,245 reported deaths and was praised by WHO for how it tackled the outbreak.
A lockdown imposed on March 12, in Italy has been extended beyond the original March 25 end date. Nearly all Italians have been told to stay at home.
Despite these measures, the number of new cases and deaths are continuing to spiral, showing just how fast the virus can spread if instructions of authorities are not followed.
There have been 220,000 cases of the virus worldwide with more than 9,000 deaths.
