Italian PM to be questioned over handling of coronavirus pandemic

Italian prosecutors will question Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte on Friday over how the government handled the COVID-19 pandemic , The prosecutors from Bergamo, the city in the northern Lombardy region worst hit by the virus, have launched an investigation into the crisis, which has killed over 34,000 people in Italy. They are looking in particular at why a red zone was not enforced in February around the towns of Nembro and Alzano. Regional officials and the government blame each other for the failure. Italy was the first European country to be ravaged by the virus. The government imposed the country's first red zone, around the town of Codogno, 24 hours after doctors discovered a patient positive for COVID-19. It went on to shut down 10 other towns, and then large areas of the north, before imposing a nationwide lockdown. Conte, Health Minister Roberto Speranza and Interior Minister Luciana Lamorgese will be called on by prosecutors in Rome later Wednesday, the Corriere della Sera and Sole 24 Ore dailies reported.
