27 Deaths In 30 Minutes –
Italy is set to lock down at least 10 million people in the region of Lombardy and 11 provinces in the north and the east of the country.
The mandatory quarantine will last until early April.
The dramatic escalation in the country’s efforts to contain the new deadly coronavirus will close gyms, pools, museums and ski resorts.
Italy is Europe’s worst hit-country and reported a steep rise in virus infections on Saturday.
The new measures could take effect as early as Sunday and will last until 3 April.
The death toll in Italy has passed 230, with officials reporting more than 50 deaths in 24 hours. The number of confirmed cases jumped by more than 1,200 to 5,883 on Saturday.
The measures published in a draft government decree were obtained by Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera.
They are set to be signed in the coming hours, reports the BBC’s Mark Lowen.
The whole northern region of Lombardy, home to 10 million people and Italy’s financial centre Milan, will be closed off except to emergency access, and 11 provinces including Venice, Parma and Modena will be affected.
