CORONAVIRUS: Italy bans internal travel


Concerned authorities in Italy have moved to stop all travel within the country, in a further escalation of its attempt to curb the spread of the deadly coronavirus also known as COVID-19.
The new policy was announced on Sunday as the death toll of patients that have died of the virus reached 5,476; and other countries step up controls on movement and daily life.
In the United Kingdom, the government said in a statement, that researchers will collect data from samples from COVID-19 infected patients in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Scientists will then map out and analyse the full genetic codes of the COVID-19 samples.
“Genomic sequencing will help us understand COVID-19 and its spread. It can also help guide treatments in the future and see the impact of interventions,” Patrick Vallance, the government’s chief scientific adviser, said in the statement.
