(ANSA) - Rome, March 31 - Italy's coronavirus lockdown will probably be extended until Easter in mid-April, Health Minister Roberto Speranza said on Monday night.
    He said this was the conclusion of a technical-scientific committee.
    "The government will move in this direction," he said.
    Speranza said the official announcement will be made after a cabinet meeting either Tuesday or Thursday. In the meantime the government is working on next month's decree that is expected to feature an 'emergency income' move.
