Italy on Lockdown due to Coronavirus
All of Italy will be placed under the lockdown conditions thus far imposed upon the so-called “red zone” in the north of the country, the Italian prime minister Giuseppe Conte has said.
The restrictions will include banning all public gatherings and preventing all movement other than for work and emergencies.
The decree, which will come into effect tomorrow morning, provides for banning all public events, closing cinemas, theaters, gyms, discos and pubs, funerals, weddings and all sport events, including Series A matches. All schools and universities will remain close until 3 April. According to the Reuters news agency, he has said the decision was necessary to protect Italy’s most vulnerable citizens and that the right course of action now is for people to stay at home.
