Italy’s government has pledged to further increase spending in a “massive shock therapy” to offset the economic impact of the coronavirus outbreak.

The country is struggling to adapt to the most restrictive measures since World War Two, introduced on Sunday. Up to 16 million people in northern Italy now need permission to travel under quarantine rules.

With 366 deaths now confirmed, Italy is the worst-hit country in the world after China.
