The 103,432 people killed by Italy's dramatic Coronavirus outbreak over the past year can never be forgotten and the death-toll is set to rise "in the coming hours," Italy's foreign minister Luigi Di Maio tweeted on Thursday.

"103,432. The number of (Italy's) COVID-19 victims and it's destined to increase in the coming hours," read the tweet.

"Today, with the national remembrance day, we honour the memory of those Italians killed by the virus. Pain, sadness, suffering. Impossible to cancel or forget," the tweet added.
