The European country Italy is easing the lockdown situation caused by the coronavirus. The country’s government has signed a decree approving the easing of the travel ban after June 3. In addition to easing international travel bans, the country will also lift regional bans on the same day.
Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte has acknowledged that there are “specific risks” in the country’s move to further ease the lockdown. He said the “line of transmission” could be up again, but the country no longer has the capacity to sit down to invent vaccines.
Prime Minister Conte has announced that entry into Italy and exit from the country, travel within Italy will start from June 3. The gym, swimming pool, and sports center will open on May 25, and the cinema and theater from June 15. European tourists will be able to enter Italy without having to go to quarantine for two weeks.
After being on lockdown for more than two months in a row, the newly announced measures are seen as a major effort to boost the country’s economy. Italy’s airline industry and the historical place were in dire straits due to the Italy travel ban.
Italy has the highest death rate in the world due to coronavirus. There died 31,600 people. Which is the third highest after the United States and the United Kingdom. However, the severity of the infection has decreased in recent days.
In February, the country became the first country in Europe to introduce a nationwide lockdown as the incidence of corona increased in northern Italy. Italy began easing the lockdown earlier this month. As part of this, parks and factories are open from 4th May.
In a televised address to the nation on Saturday evening, Prime Minister Conte said, “We are going to face certain risks, and that is that the line of transmission may be up again.” “We have to accept that. Otherwise, we will never be able to start anew.”
The prime minister also said Italy could not wait for the discovery of a trade embargo because “then there could be a major economic and social breakdown in the country.”
Despite calls for the lifting of the embargo in some parts of Italy, the prime minister said the embargo would be lifted gradually to deal with the second wave of infections. Shops and restaurants will be open from May 18 while maintaining social distance. Catholic churches are also preparing to open on the same day, but there must be strictly social distance and everyone must wear a mask. Followers of other religions will also be able to perform their own religious rites. The airline’s ban will be lifted on June 3.
Italy, once the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak, is seeing new signs of declining mortality. March 27 is a day in the country where 900 people died. 263 people died there yesterday.
The Italian government has announced a 55 billion euro stimulus package for businessmen and families in the country. Lockdown has begun to ease as coronavirus mortality rates have dropped across Europe. Portugal, Spain, and Greece have reduced their coronavirus health alert.
