Italy says virus daily death toll under 100

The daily coronavirus death toll in Italy dropped to 99 on Monday for the first time since early March, the civil protection agency said, as the country  largely lifted a lockdown.

It was the lowest toll since March 9 -- the day Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte announced he was shutting down the country.
