Northern Italy was rattled by an earthquake near the heart of the coronavirus outbreak today. The 4.5-magnitude tremor struck near Coli in the region of Emilia-Romagna, 30 miles of Genoa and 60 miles south of Milan.

Emilia-Romagna has more than 21,000 virus cases and the epicenter was near the border with Lombardy, which has recorded more than 62,000 infections.
Some people reported seeing their furniture shake and a ‘slight wave movement’ in Genoa while another witness said the earthquake felt like a passing truck.
The US Geological Survey says the quake struck at 11.42am local time at a depth of six miles with an epicentre near Coli. Coli is a commune in the province of Piacenza, which has recorded 3,223 cases of coronavirus.
