About this dataFor total cases and deaths: The map shows the known locations of coronavirus cases by region. Circles are sized by the number of people there who have tested positive or have a probable case of the virus, which may differ from where they contracted the illness.
Here’s how the number of new known cases and deaths are growing across Italy’s provinces.

The New York Times has found that official tallies in the United States and in more than a dozen other countries have undercounted deaths during the coronavirus outbreak because of limited testing availability.
Daily data at the regional and provincial level is provided by the Italian Department of Civil Protection in Italian and English. The data includes the number of confirmed cases, deaths, recoveries, hospitalized patients and the number of people in intensive care. The data on the number of “swabs” undertaken each day reflects the number of tests performed, and the Civil Protection has recently started providing the number of people tested as well.
The head of Italy’s Civil Protection agency estimated that the number of cases could be as much as ten times higher than the current figure. A study by Italy’s national statistics agency strongly suggests that many more Italians may have died from the coronavirus than the official numbers indicate.
Where You Can Find More Information
Read more about the toll the virus has taken on Italian families, the healthcare system, the poorer south, and some particularly vulnerable populations such as priests and nuns, supermarket clerks and the homeless. Italy, the unfortunate vanguard of Western democracies grappling with the virus, is now weighing different options on how to reopen the country, and having the right antibodies might play a role in determining who gets to work and who does not.

About the data
Governments often revise data or report a single-day large increase in cases or deaths from unspecified days without historical revisions, which can cause an irregular pattern in the daily reported figures. The Times is excluding these anomalies from seven-day averages when possible.

What you can do
Experts’ understanding of how the Covid-19 works is growing. It seems that there are four factors that most likely play a role: how close you get to an infected person; how long you are near that person; whether that person expels viral droplets on or near you; and how much you touch your face afterwards. Here is a guide to the symptoms of Covid-19.
You can help reduce your risk and do your part to protect others by following some basic steps:
Keep your distance from others. Stay at least six feet away from people outside your household as much as possible.
Wear a mask outside your home. A mask protects others from your germs, and it protects you from infection as well. The more people who wear masks, the more we all stay safer.
Wash your hands often. Anytime you come in contact with a surface outside your home, scrub with soap for at least 20 seconds, rinse and then dry your hands with a clean towel.
Avoid touching your face. The virus can spread when our hands come into contact with the virus, and we touch our nose, mouth or eyes. Try to keep your hands away from your face unless you have just recently washed them.
