The first case on Italian soil was identified on February 20 and the Peninsula became the first European country to be hit hard by what would later become a global pandemic.
Today the number of total positive tests, including those who recovered or who died, reached 1,028,424.
There were 623 deaths over the last 24 hours, with an extra 110 people admitted to intensive care, meaning there are now 3,081 in the ICU.
