The curfew will run from 10:00pm until 5:00am across the country

Italy's prime minister has signed a decree to enforce a nationwide night curfew from 10:00pm on Thursday to stop the resurgence of coronavirus, media reported.

Giuseppe Conte was expected to detail other anti-virus measures, such as shutting shopping centres, which will remain in force until December 3.

The reports say that Italy's 20 regions will be classed with a three-tier system -- red, orange and green -- with the red states facing the most restrictive measures.

The curfew will run from 10:00pm until 5:00am across the country.

The regionalized approach means Conte's government is resisting a blanket nationwide lockdown approach, which has been adopted by countries including France, Ireland and England.

Over the last week, Italy has been hit by a series of fairly small but sometimes violent demonstrations in cities against previously announced shutdown measures, such as the closure of bars and restaurants.
