Schools in Italy have been shut down and all school outings and activities cancelled nationwide following the rise in numbers to 3,089 cases.

The restriction is particularly stringent in Lombardy, which is one of the twenty administrative regions of Italy.

Speaking at a press briefing in Rome, Italy’s Special Commissioner for the Coronavirus, Angelo Borrelli, said there have been a further 28 deaths to bring the toll to 107, the highest outside China.

The strain on Lombardy’s health system has forced authorities to bring doctors out of retirement, accelerate graduation dates for nursing students, and incorporate doctors and hospital beds from the private sector.

France, which has the most cases after Italy, has urged citizens to stop shaking hands and banned events with more than 5,000 people.
