Italy sounded the alarm over the rise in coronavirus cases in fellow European countries after a spike in the number of infections discovered among returning Italian holidaymakers.

“Not to worry (about new cases from abroad) would be unconscionable,” Health Minister Roberto Speranza told the Corriere della Sera daily, which noted: “France, Spain and the Balkans… Italy is surrounded by contagions”.

Fear over new outbreaks imported by returning vacationers has been fuelled by the much-publicised case of 30 young Italians from the Veneto region who holidayed in Croatia and returned with coronavirus at the start of August.
