As the number of cases and deaths rise sharply Italy faces growing isolation with thousands of flights cancelled and stringent controls on its borders with Austria and Slovenia. Public gatherings including sports events are banned, and schools and universities are closed. Italians are being advised to stay at home. In the UK, a 6th person has died and the number of cases has risen to 382.
