Italy is the country hardest hit by the virus outbreak, with 900 cases and 21 deaths — mostly in cities in the north.

The decision had been taken in response to the “exceptional circumstances concerning the protection of public health and security”, the league said.

Last weekend, four Serie-A matches were postponed with the Hellas Verona v Cagliari and the Torino v Parma matches to be played on March 11. No date has been fixed as yet for the Atalanta v Sassuolo and Inter Milan v Sampdoria games.
