SUBTITLE: Italy imposes strict curfew to curb rising COVID-19 cases

Italy has imposed a strict nationwide curfew starting from 10 pm to 5 am to curb the rising number of COVID-19 cases. Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte announced the new measure on Sunday, which will be in effect from Monday.

Conte said that the curfew is to “avoid a new lockdown” and that the country must “make an extra effort.” The curfew will last until 3 December.

The decision follows an increase in cases in the country, with Italy reporting 66,000 new cases and more than 500 deaths in the past week alone.

Exceptions to the curfew will be made for those who need to work or have other “urgent” reasons for travelling during the restricted hours. However, cinemas, theatres, and gyms will be closed for the next month.

Conte also urged regions with high numbers of cases to introduce stricter measures like curfews and lockdowns.

Italy was one of the first countries in Europe to impose strict lockdown measures back in March when the pandemic first hit.

Although the situation has improved since then, the latest increase in cases has prompted Conte to take further measures to avoid another nationwide lockdown.
