Italy tightens restriction across the country

Italy is facing “a new wave” of coronavirus infections, Prime Minister Mario Draghi has warned, as his government prepared to tighten restrictions across most of the country.
Schools, restaurants, shops and museums are expected to close from Monday in the majority of regions, after Italy recorded almost 26,000 new Covid-19 cases and another 373 deaths yesterday.
During a visit to a new vaccination centre at Rome’s Fiumicino airport, Mr Draghi did not give details of the new measures but said his cabinet had agreed to adopt “appropriate and proportionate” restrictions.
“More than a year after the start of the health emergency, we are unfortunately facing a new wave of infections,” he said.
He said the figures – showing an almost 15% increase in infections over the past week – required the “utmost caution” to limit deaths and pressure on health services.
