Obviously, in Italy, “dolce vita” and deconfinement do not mix well. The President of the Council of Ministers, Giuseppe Conte, made the report. “He observed, while walking in the streets of Rome (Italy), Thursday, that there is a lot of people on the terraces and that the distances between people are not always respected, that not everyone has their mask, far from it. We can understand the Italians, who were very respectful of the rules for 70 days “, explains the journalist Alban Mikoczy, in duplex from the Roman capital.
“But since Monday, it's phase 2, with a certain openness. The Italians understood this as a call for a little freedom. The problem is the statistics. The government officially presents them every night, counting more 600 contaminations every day this week and more than 150 deaths. (…) The authorities have threatened to impose fines if this attitude continues. We will see if this pedagogy succeeds in convincing the Italians “, he concludes.
