Coronavirus cases in Italy rise to 400 as regional official self-isolates

In Europe, the number of people infected with coronavirus in Italy has risen to 400, according to civil protection chief Angelo Borrelli, while the death toll remains at 12 people.

Italy is struggling to contain the virus in its northern region; several European countries have reported their first cases in recent days, many of which stemmed from people who had visited Italy.

Meanwhile, Attilio Fontana, president of Lombardia Region, has gone into self-isolation after one of his staff tested positive. He announced the news live on Facebook.

Important news, I'm live from the office at Palazzo Lombardia.

A collaborator of my staff tested positive at #Coronavirus.
So today we performed the test both myself and the rest of my team and fortunately, we are negative at the moment.
This will mean for us, as for all citizens in this situation, a 14-day self-quarantine period.
