Six Nations games under threat and five Serie A matches to be played behind closed doors - Coronavirus

Ireland played Italy in August 2019

Ireland's Six Nations game against Italy in Dublin on March 7 should be postponed because of the coronavirus situation, says Irish Health Minister Simon Harris.
Seven people have died in Italy and 229 tested positive for the virus, while 11 towns in the north are in lockdown.
"This game should not go ahead," Harris told Irish broadcaster RTE.
The Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU) said it was seeking an "urgent meeting" with Harris after his comments.
Earlier, Six Nations organizers said they were "monitoring very closely" the coronavirus situation.
This weekend five Serie A matches will be played behind closed doors - including Juventus' match at home to Inter Milan - because of the outbreak.
Meanwhile, Formula 1 team Ferrari says it has taken measures to limit the impact of the outbreak.
