Europe is seeing further signs of hope in the coronavirus outbreak as Italy’s daily death toll was at its lowest in more than two weeks and its infection curve was finally on a downward slope. For days, anticipating a possible downward slope in the curve, government and health authorities in Italy have cautioned that restrictions on movement would likely last in some form for weeks. In Spain, new deaths dropped for the third straight day Sunday. But the optimism was tempered by Britain experiencing a jump in coronavirus deaths that outpaced the daily toll in Italy.
