Italy enforces lockdown for not becoming next epicentre of spreading novel coronavirus epidemic

Italy has enforced an extraordinary, sweeping lockdown in hopes of not becoming the next epicentre of the spreading novel coronavirus epidemic. However, life in China is edging back to normal.   Italian Civil Protection authorities today said infections in Italy crossed the 10,000 mark.
 
Police across the country patrolled cafes to ensure owners kept customers 1 metre (3 feet) apart during daylight hours and then enforced a strict 6 pm closure order.

By encouraging many of Italy's 62 million people to stay home and further drying up what was left of the country's already battered tourism industry, the lockdown could increase the likelihood of a recession, dealing another blow to reeling global markets.
Italy's economy, the third-largest of the 19 countries that use the euro currency, relies heavily on industries requiring the physical presence and proximity of workers: tourism, manufacturing, and retail.
