Italians have been advised against trips to other European countries because of surging coronavirus cases, with the foreign ministry warning they could get face issues in returning home if travel bans became necessary.

The Ministry said that, given the high number of infections in many European countries, future further restrictions on movements that may complicate return to Italy could not be ruled out.

It said similar problems in returning could occur, with a much more serious incidence, in the case of travel to extra-EU destinations. 

The number of new COVID cases in the last 24 hours fell to 17,012 Monday from over 21,000 Sunday, the health ministry said.

There were 141 new victims, up from 128 Sunday.

The number of swabs was also down, at 124,686, about 40,000 fewer than Sunday’s 161,880.
