(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 9 – League leader Matteo Salvini said
Tuesday that he would not be in favour of imposing another
nationwide lockdown to combat the spread of COVID-19.
    “It is right to return to (normal) life where possible,”
Salvini, whose party, like almost all the groups in parliament,
supports Premier Mario Draghi’s government, said in an interview
on Facebook with journalist Annalisa Chirico.
    “A lockdown? I don’t have the data but I’m in favour of
intervening where there is a situation of risk, not in Sardinia
or where contagion is not increasing.
    “I’m against intervening in a general way, the interventions
should be surgical.
    “A national lockdown would be punitive”.
    Salvini said he was hoping to see restrictions eased, rather
than tightened.
    “Let’s get through March and then after Easter, we hope to
reopen,” he said. (ANSA).
