COVID: All Italy set to be red zone over Easter (5)

(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 12 – The government intends to make the
whole of Italy a COVID-19 ‘red zone’ from April 3 to 5, a period
which includes Easter Sunday and Easter Monday, sources said
Friday as Premier Mario Draghi’s administration held talks with
regional governments and other local authorities on new
restrictions.
    Draghi’s government is set to impose a new regime of measures in
force from March 15 until April 6, with COVID-19 cases rising
sharply in Italy, the sources said.
    Red is the maximum level in Italy’s tired system of coronavirus
restrictions.
    In red zones, non-essential shops are closed, restaurants and
bars cannot serve customers and pupils must have lessons via
distance learning, among other things.
    Emilia-Romagna Governor Stefano Bonaccini, the president of
Italy’s conference of regions, gave a “positive judgement” of
the decree with the measures that the government is set to
present, the sources said.
    Bonaccini, welcomed the fact that the decree gives governors the
ability to impose measures at the provincial level, if contagion
is especially high in a specific area within a region.
    “The virus is expanding and (we need) restrictive measures today
to save the summer,” Bonaccini said, according to the sources.
    “The sooner we act the better.
    “The utmost caution and prudence is needed”. (ANSA).
