Army lockdown in Milan
There are no alternatives to restrictions to stem the spread of the virus. This was stated by the Prime Minister, Mario Draghi, speaking at the solemn meeting for the closing of the academic year of the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei. It is the confirmation of how much Affaritaliani.it has already written in two different articles in recent days (click here and here). If the Delta variant of Covid-19 also spreads rapidly and uncontrollably in Italy, the government would immediately intervene with surgical and local mini-lockdowns to prevent a new wave. The number of people vaccinated with the second dose is still too low to say that the danger has escaped and the new restrictions that are being launched from the UK to other important parts of the world, such as Australia, show that the words lockdown and red zone are by no means the past. Indeed, they could soon be the present and the future.
Already in August, if the situation were to signal an increase in infections, several regions could return to the yellow, orange or even red zone. Without excluding different lockdown from North to South, perhaps for one or two weeks, in which the curfew at 10 pm, the closure of cinemas, theaters, gyms, swimming pools and the possibility of bars and restaurants would return – for provinces, city districts or groups of municipalities to work only until 6pm and only with the takeaway service. It would be a huge blow for the recovery and for tourism, of course, but as he said today Dragons there are no alternatives to restrictions to deal with and stop the spread of the virus. The government is ready for anything. Are the Italians who have a great desire to transgress and break the rules (especially young people in many cases irresponsible) ready?
