Italy has extended the state of emergency imposed in the country due to the coronavirus outbreak until Oct. 15, according to a government statement released early Thursday morning local time.

“The Council of Ministers, on the proposal of President Giuseppe Conte, approved the extension,” the statement read.

Italy was one of the first European countries to be hit by the virus and went into a state of emergency on Jan. 31.

The legal framework gives the government special powers to curb certain freedoms and access to additional resources to stop and contain the spread of Covid-19.

The latest numbers: The country has so far recorded 246,776 coronavirus cases and 35,129 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University data.
