Govt task force to consider tougher COVID restrictions

(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 10 – The government’s ‘cabina di regia’
COVID-19 task force is meeting on Wednesday to assess possible
new restrictions amid a rise in contagion in Italy.
    The task force, which features officials from the health
ministry, the Higher Health Institute (ISS) and the regional
governments, will look at proposed tighter restrictions from the
CTS panel of experts advising the government on its response to
the pandemic.
    The CTS has proposed closing down all non-essential shops and
activities at weekends, along the lines of the restrictions
imposed during the Christmas holidays, given the rise in
contagion
The idea is to further prevent contact between people to combat
infection, even in moderate-coronavirus risk yellow zones.
    The panel also proposed tougher measures in high-contagion risk
red zones like those adopted a year ago in the northern town of
Codogno, which was sealed off after becoming one of the nation’s
first coronavirus hotspots. (ANSA).
