The whole of Italy has been placed on lockdown to prevent the spread of Coronavirus.

All public gatherings will be banned, sports events including football matches are suspended, and movement is being severely restricted across the country in a bid to halt the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by coronavirus.

Italy is the worst-hit nation in Europe by COVID-19 with 463 virus-related deaths, an increase of almost 100 in a 24-hour period, and more than 9,000 confirmed infections.

Around 60 million people will now effectively be placed under quarantine by the strict measures which had already been introduced in northern and some central areas over the weekend.
