Dozens of passengers from Lombardy and Veneto - the two worst-affected regions of Italy - were told to return home or face quarantine in Mauritius, airline Alitalia said. Forty of the 224 people on board eventually chose to return home to northern Italy where 50,000 people have been placed under lockdown, schools shut and public events banned in a drastic bid to contain the virus. Three more deaths were confirmed in Lombardy today after an 84-year-old patient in Bergamo, an 88-year-old man from Caselle Landi and a woman at a Brescia hospital died from the virus, bringing Italy's death toll to six. The outbreak has sparked fears that tourists returning from Italy could send the epidemic spiralling across Europe.
