COVID-19: The latest from The World

'Social isolation' is the only way to stop coronavirus, says Italian doctor

The government has told all Italians to stay at home and avoid non-essential travel until April 3, radically widening steps already taken in much of the wealthy north, which is the epicenter of the spreading contagion. Italy's Lombardy region in the north of the country, where Stefano Magnone works as a surgeon at the Papa Giovanni 23rd hospital, has been the hardest hit. Magnone spoke with The World's Marco Werman.
