A region of Italy has reduced some virus restrictions.

LONDON The British government says that another 717 people who tested positive for coronavirus died in hospitals, bringing the total to 11,329.

Britain became the fourth European country on Sunday, after Italy, Spain and France to register more than 10,000 deaths.

However, the figures may not be exactly comparable. The deaths reported every day in the UK occurred over several days or even weeks, and the total does not include deaths outside hospitals, such as in nursing homes.

Britain went into receivership on March 23 and the government is expected to extend the restrictions later this week.

Outdoor markets can resume as long as only one entrance and one exit is established, and everyone covers their nose and mouth with a mask or scarf, and wears gloves or has disinfectant with them hands.

The Veneto was credited with a rapid response to the virus, including a higher number of tests than the national average, which helped limit the number of deaths. It is the fourth hardest hit, recording 9% of all infections but only 4% of deaths, at 779 to date.

As of Monday, 1,427 people with the virus had been hospitalized and 245 were in intensive care. If these numbers increase, we will have to redouble our efforts, warned Zaia.

WASHINGTON According to the United States Navy, a crew member of an aircraft carrier who was hospitalized in intensive care last week on the island of Guam died of what the authorities called complications related to COVID-19.

The sailor was among nearly 600 crew members of the USS Theodore Roosevelt to have tested positive for the new coronavirus.

In announcing the death on Monday, the Navy said that the sailor had not been spotted during a medical examination on April 9 while he was isolated in Guam. The Navy said other sailors and a medical team on site at the house in which the sailor remained administered CPR.

Russia had registered 18,328 cases of coronavirus and 148 deaths on Monday. Moscow and the surrounding area accounted for about two-thirds of all cases.

Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova informed Putin that Russia has 40,000 hospital beds for COVID-19 patients and plans to increase the number to 95,000. She said that infections were steadily increasing by 16% to 18% per day.

LONDON Boris Johnsons, spokesperson, said the British Prime Minister was recovering from COVID-19 and, on the advice of his doctors, did not immediately return to work.

Johnson was released from St. Thomas Hospital in London on Sunday, and then made his way to Checkers, the prime ministers’ country residence, about 40 miles (northwest) of the capital.

James Slack confirmed that Johnson had now tested negative for the coronavirus and denied that the government had downplayed the severity of Johnsons’ condition.

Johnson was admitted to St. Thomas on April 5 after his condition worsened and was transferred the following day to his intensive care unit, where he received oxygen but was not put on ventilator. He spent three nights there before returning to a regular hospital.

Slack said that Johnson had talks with Foreign Minister Dominic Raab over the weekend who had deputized for the Prime Minister during his illness.
