  • Italy’s health system is on the brink of collapse as hospital struggle to find enough beds for the country’s rapidly rising list of coronavirus infections.

    The Italian Government has banned all movement and some of the 5,500 bodies of those killed by the virus are being stored in churches which are being set up as temporary morgues.

    More than 6,500 Italians have been testing positive for the virus every day which result in an average of 78.5 new deaths.
