COVID-19 kills 49 people in Italy in one day

In Italy, 197 people have died due to coronavirus so far, the country's authorities announced on Friday. This is up by 49 from yesterday's death toll.

The total number of registered infections jumped from 3,858 to 4,636 in one day, out of which 3,916 are active cases, the update added. As of 5 pm CET, 36,359 people have been tested for the disease.

Moody's Analytics said earlier in the day that the Italian economy is likely to contract in the current quarter due to the outbreak of the virus, which would qualify the trend as a recession.
