Reports suggest an increased tension and fear among Ghanaian students in Italy following the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus in the country.

Italy recently became Europe’s worst-hit country, having recorded about 300 cases of the coronavirus and 11 deaths.

The European nation has put some cities and towns on lockdown in this regard with 11 towns being in Lombardy and Veneto.

One of the Ghanaian students who spoke to Citi News indicated that all public activity in her area had come to a halt.

“As far as lectures [are concerned], schools are now trying to start online classes. We are supposed to be on lockdown until March 1. Prior to that, we were advised to  go shopping and stock up on groceries to last the period of the lockdown,” she said.
