Italy's statistics bureau calls off press briefings due to coronavirus

MILANO, March 5 (Reuters) - Italy’s statistics bureau said on Thursday it would suspend press briefings next week as the country battles with the worst coronavirus outbreak in Europe.

In line with measures adopted by the Italian government in an effort to prevent the spread of the virus, Istat called off briefings scheduled for March 10 and 12 when it is due to release macroeconomic data, the bureau said in a statement.
