International Editor

The number of cases in Italy continues to rise, especially in the northern Lombardy region which has seen more than 4,000 deaths to date.

120 people have died in one little town – Nembro, northeast of Bergamo, the epicentre of the outbreak.

Throughout the lockdown there, a group of eighty volunteers has been providing services to those who are sick and isolated at home.
