A man wearing a face mask collapsed on the streets of Rome before medics arrived.
He was loaded into an ambulance before being taken to the hospital.

Sobering images from Italy showed paramedics rushing to help a man who collapsed at a bus stop in scenes reminiscent of China during the worst stages of its epidemic.
Medics in Rome were seen loading the man into an ambulance as the government announced that 651 people died from the virus that day alone, bringing the weekend death toll to a staggering 1,444 – one every 2 minutes.
Since the start of Italy’s outbreak 5,476 people have now died, accounting for a third of the world’s total fatalities. Almost 60,000 infections have been confirmed.
