Italy urged to β€˜lock down’ to avoid β€˜national tragedy’

An adviser to Italy’s health ministry has called for coronavirus restrictions to be drastically tightened to avoid a β€œnational tragedy” after the national statistics bureau ISTAT said deaths this year would be the highest since World War Two.

β€œWe are in a war situation, people don’t realise it but the last time we had this many deaths, bombs were dropping on our cities during the war,” public health professor Walter Ricciardi told the television channel la7.
