Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte has signed a decree to extend the quarantine in the country amid the coronavirus outbreak until April 13.
Axar.az reports citing Russian media.
"The corresponding order on extending the quarantine until April 13 has been signed, and we cannot ease restrictive measures and we cannot promise that they will be eased from April 14," Conte told a press conference on Wednesday.
"When experts approve, we will move to phase 2 and gradually lift the quarantine. Then phase 3 will follow, and we will lift the state of emergency," he added. "If we start easing measures now, then all the efforts made so far will be in vain," he noted.
Italian Health Minister Roberto Speranza earlier announced that the quarantine measures will be extended, and schools will remain closed.
