COVID-19: Quarantined inside Italy’s red zone


This is the village of San Fiorano in northern Italy’s Lombardy region, one of the areas worst affected by coronavirus.

Italy has 400 cases of coronavirus and 12 people have died there since the outbreak began.

Eleven towns and villages in Lombardy, the region around Milan, and Veneto, which includes Venice, are in a quarantined red zone, home to a total of 55,000 people.

They have been told not to leave for two weeks as Italian authorities try to contain the spread of the virus.

Daniela Marchiotti, a writer and translator, lives in San Fiorano with husband Daniele and daughter Emma.

It’s been seven days since the family were told not to leave the red zone. Here, Daniela tells the BBC what life is like in a quarantined village.
