ROME – New lockdown ‘out of the question’

Another total lockdown repeating that seen during the first wave of Covid-19 in Italy is “out of the question”, Italy’s foreign minister Luigi Di Maio has said, adding that Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte had “excluded the possibility too.”

“The measures we will have to take depend on the responsibility of Italians. We are one of the countries with the lowest amount of daily infections and this is thanks to the responsibility of Italian people”, Di Maio said.

“We will have to make some more sacrifices regarding social distancing and facemasks, so that more drastic measures will not be necessary”, he added.
