Consequently, the Italian Government announced further lockdown measures to combat the spread of coronavirus.

Supermarket, pharmacies, public transportations, banks and post offices will remain open, and all jobs and activities related to food distribution and essential public services will continue.

The new measures are more draconian than the initial lockdown, which began two weeks ago.

“The health emergency, as we foresaw, is turning into a full economic emergency, but I want to say to all of you that the state is here, the state is present.

  1. The message is heartbreaking but I do not believe we have or you have lost. We are challenged and the ways we know aren’t working but all mankind is focused. We’re in new territory–a place where answers are not already known. A place where discovery is the task and solving the mystery the prize. It seems this is bringing together all sectors. We have curious minds and we are capable of anything.

    • We, the human are nothing when it comes to fight against Nature. It’s a wake up call from skies, we Must get back to basics of a humanity. We must care and protect suppressed otherwise we shall be punished collectively.
