Italiens riesige Sperrzone gegen Ausbreitung des Coronavirus

By Jordi Bou

March 9, 2020 - Die gesamte Lombardei inklusive der Finanzmetropole Mailand und 14 weitere Provinzen werden zur Sperrzone für ein Viertel der italienischen Bevölkerung, ein Versuch der Regierung die Ausbreitung des Coronavirus zu bremsen.

Italy's government has pledged to further increase spending in a "massive shock therapy" to offset the economic impact of the outbreak.

With more than 360 deaths now confirmed, Italy is the worst-hit country in the world after China.

Quarantine measures in place until April 3 include the closing of museums, theatres, cinemas, gyms, cultural
centres, ski resorts and swimming pools.

Entry and exit from quarantined areas are prohibited, except for proven work-related matters, emergencies or health reasons.

Restaurants and bars are allowed to open from 6:00am to 6:00pm but customers must remain at least one metre apart.

Church services, including funerals and weddings, are suspended. Pope Francis will deliver prayers via live-streaming from inside the Vatican.

The number of infections worldwide is now more than 107,000, with about 3,600 deaths.
