Italy returns to strict lockdown for Easter
Addis Ababa, April 3, 2021 (FBC) -Italy has entered a strict three-day lockdown to try to prevent a surge in Covid-19 cases over Easter.
All regions are now in the “red zone” – the highest tier of restrictions – as the country battles a third wave, with about 20,000 new cases a day.
Non-essential movement is banned, but people are allowed to share an Easter meal at home with two other adults.
Churches are also open, but worshippers are being told to attend services within their own regions.
More than 110,328 people in total have died of the coronavirus in Italy, and there have been 3.6 million confirmed infections, according to BBC.
