Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte gathered his Cabinet shortly after the increase of registered cases of coronavirus, or Covid-19, and delivered remarks about the current situation and upcoming measures. "But, with the data we have today, we can still hope to limit the contagion", Zaia said. The mayor of Milan, the business capital of Italy, shuttered public offices.

Italy has been responding to a spike in coronavirus cases since Friday, with two deaths reported in Lombardy and Veneto.

After Lombardy, the next hardest-hit region is Veneto, in the northeast, with at least 17 cases.

Health officials reported isolated cases in the neighbouring regions of Piedmont and Emilia Romagna, saying the total number of known infections in Italy had risen to above 130.

The order was signed by Veneto District Manager Luca Zaia and Health Minister Roberto Speranza.

"You can get it from anyone", he told reporters.

Around 50,000 people in small towns across the northern regions of Veneto and Lombardy have been quarantined, while public gatherings such as football matches and church services have been suspended.

In Milan, residents rushed to stock up on essentials, while some parents made a decision to take their children out of the city.

Italian authorities have announced sweeping closures in the country's north as they scramble to contain Europe's biggest outbreak of the novel coronavirus.

Any prolonged disruption there is likely to have a serious impact on the whole economy, which is already flirting with recession.

Milan's famous La Scala opera house cancelled performances, and bars and discos in Lombardy were told to close by 6pm local time.

AC Milan also announced on Sunday the postponement of their women's team's match against Fiorentina, while five Serie C games programmed for next Wednesday have been postponed.

Health authorities are struggling to work out how the outbreak started.

So far, more than 76,000 people have been diagnosed with the virus in China with nearly 11,000 facing serious health conditions.

Separately Saturday, 19 Italians who spent more than two weeks quarantined on a virus-stricken cruise liner in Japan landed at Rome's military Pratica di Mare airport. "We can expect to have cases of patients who had no contact" with suspected carriers.

Two Chinese tourists from Wuhan tested positive in Rome in late January, while an Italian who returned home on a special flight repatriating some 56 nationals from the same city was hospitalized a week later.

"It's inhuman, fighting for four sandwiches is simply disgusting", complained a man named Sante, who sat in his vehicle outside and said that if he could, "I would go to Rome and kick them in the butt".
