Coronavirus: First children infected in Italy - BBC News
BBC News
The outbreak of coronavirus in Italy is getting worse, BBC correspondent Bethany Bell reports.
The authorities say four children have been infected, the first such cases in this county.
Twelve people have died - all of them either elderly or with underlying health problems.
Several cases in other European countries have been reported among people who have recently been in northern Italy.
On a visit to Rome, the EU’s health commissioner Stella Kyriakides said the situation was a cause for concern but not for panic. Schools, universities, museums, cinemas and theatres remain closed across much of the north.
A number of tourists have cancelled their visits. There are fears the outbreak could send Italy’s economy in recession.

Several European countries have announced their first coronavirus cases, all apparently linked to the growing outbreak in Italy.
Austria, Croatia and Switzerland said the cases involved people who had been to Italy, as did Algeria in Africa.
The first positive virus test has been recorded in Latin America - a Brazilian resident just returned from Italy.
Italy has in recent days become Europe's worst-affected country, with more than 300 cases and 11 deaths.
But its neighbours have decided closing borders would be "disproportionate".
Health ministers from France, Germany, Italy and the EU Commission committed to keeping frontiers open at a meeting on Tuesday as new cases of the virus emerged throughout Europe and in central and southern Italy.

    Are you in need of face mask or alcohol based hand sanitizers to keep you constantly protected? Are you having troubles with the long queues at the stores in getting your required items? Do you want to get tested at the comfort of your home with a scientifically designed Russia test kit and get result in 18 hours? Do you also need the chloroquine and Zinc Treatment Combo to keep your immune system strong and fight off the virus? If yes, then I suggest you contact this professional hacker to save you from the present world crisis. Prevention is better than cure so please stay home and quarantine yourself. I’m so happy that I got help from hacker Gavin. He is a professional online carting and medical hacker and I’m glad that I contacted him for my desired needs and necessary pandemic essentials to keep myself safe without leaving the comfort of my home. He also shipped a scientifically designed Russia test kit to my home and I got tested myself without having to go to any hospital. It is a big risk going to the hospital to get tested as lots of positive patients are out there making it easier to contact the Covid-19 virus at the hospital. All I did was share my home address with hacker Gavin and I had all my orders shipped to my door step conveniently. You can contact this great hacker “Gavin” via Gmail (cyberhackinggenius) or text and speak to him directly on his phone and WhatsApp : +19256795146 and don’t forget to thank me later!

      Most older people's immune system is weaker and young people's is stronger. But some older people in their 80's and 90's survived and some children have died.

    Why isn't anyone talking about how children and infants are so completely unaffected!?!! That's easily the most fishy element of this whole thing. Really looks like an engineered illness, specifically designed to only kill off the elderly. The percentage of the global economy that goes to pensions, 401k's, retirement, social security, etc. Is staggering. Looks to me like the Powers That Be don't wanna pay.
