Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte announced the closure of all stores in all parts of the country except those that sell food and pharmacies, in an unprecedented measure to curb the spread of the Coronavirus emerging in the country.

We are closing shops, nightclubs, bars and restaurants,” Conte said in a televised address to the nation.

He pointed out that “home delivery will remain permissible” and that “the effect of this effort will appear in the next 14 days,” at a time when the number of people affected by the epidemic has reached more than 12 thousand people, of whom 827 have died.

The Italian government has expanded the restrictions imposed since last Sunday on the movement of citizens and their gatherings in the north of the country to include “all parts of the country”, according to a decree issued yesterday evening, and it will come into effect at dawn on Tuesday, with the aim of reducing the outbreak of the new Coronavirus “Covid-19”.

According to the decree, the exceptional measures, which have been subject to it since Sunday, a quarter of the country’s population, as of Tuesday morning, will be applied to all Italian lands.

These measures include in particular limiting movement between regions and preventing gathering, in addition to canceling all sporting events “whatever their level or type”, except for those organized by international institutions.

It is noteworthy that the measures announced by Conte were preceded by the announcement of the suspension of the Italian football league after the Italian Olympic Committee recommended the suspension of all sports activities at all levels until the third of next April.
