By region, Lombardy is the one that has registered the most deaths with more than 30,000, followed by Veneto, Compania, Emilia-Romagna and Piedmont.

Italy is one of the nations where deaths have been one of the most striking lines since the start of the pandemic, because in addition to the peak of deaths recorded in April 2020, it reached another between November and December of the same year that it spread (although with downward trend) in the first months of 2021.

Since the sunset of December and the dawn of January, deaths in Italy have experienced an increase caused, among other things, by the expansion of the Ómicron variant.

On the other hand, in the same EU, France is second to Italy in the number of deaths with about 130,000 with the 268 deaths confirmed this Thursday.

Regarding the French nation, the highest peak in deaths was experienced in April 2020, however, the second half of January has shown an increase in that indicator of deaths.

The European Union continues to be significantly affected by the spread of the Omicron variant, with record numbers of infections reported in several countries including Austria, Belgium, Germany and Portugal.

Regarding the last nation mentioned, after showing some control of the pandemic, it has been reporting unprecedented numbers of Covid-19 cases, such as the 65,706 positive patients identified in the last 24 hours.
