ITALY CLOSES GYMS, CINEMAS AND HALLS AS COVID-19 CASES RISE


26/10/2020




İrem UZUN -TDO- Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte and regional leaders have agreed on new measures to combat the increase in coronavirus infections in the country.  Cinemas, swimming pools, gyms, theatre and concert halls will close in Italy from Monday and bars and restaurants will have to shut by 6 pm, but shops and most other commerce will remain open.

Italy’s measures were agreed between Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte and regional leaders.  The Campania region, which contains Naples, has been among those calling for tighter restrictions. Conte has said he does not want to repeat the national lockdown imposed during the first wave in March and April because of the economic damaged caused.  Under the new measures, the bulk of secondary school teaching will be conducted online instead of in the classroom.

Conte said the measures were aimed at protecting both public health and the economy and should bring the rising curve of the epidemic under control in the next few weeks to allow a "serene" Christmas.  "We think we will suffer a bit this month but by gritting our teeth with these restrictions, we'll be able to breathe again in December," he told a news conference, promising that sectors hit by the measures would be compensated.
