Italy not in position to relax COVID-19 restrictions - minister

Italian Health Minister Roberto Speranza (pictured) stated on Wednesday the conditions in the country were not yet "in place to relax" the restrictions imposed to curb the spread of COVID-19.

"We finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. [...] We are at the last mile in this long and difficult battle. In this last mile, we cannot let our guard down," Speranza said. "There is no road other than unity."

His remarks come following the report the government was planning to extend the restrictions until March 27.
