- Story Text: As Italy enters its fourth day of nationwide coronavirus lockdown, the entire country has a new normal: empty tourist sites, closed bars, pubs and restaurants, queuing to shop in a pharmacy. This is coronavirus Italy.
In Naples, on a beautiful sunny day by the sea on Thursday (March 12), the stunning Mount Vesuvius was almost all that could be seen when you look out from a viewpoint by the Maschio Angioino castle, with only police cars on the roads and a few people walking their dogs down the street.
In Rome's ancient Trastevere neighbourhood that is usually full of tourists queuing up to visit popular restaurants and buzzing bars, everything was closed.
The death toll from an outbreak of coronavirus in Italy has jumped by 189 to 1,016, a rise of 23%, the Civil Protection Agency said on Thursday. The total number of cases in Italy rose to 15,113 from a previous 12,462.
