BREAKING. #Italy puts the whole region of Lombardy and other critical zones of Piemonte, Emilia Romagna and Veneto under strict isolation to tackle #coronavirus emergency and contain its spread: entering/exiting those areas will be prohibited.
UPDATE: several Northern Italy local authorities are upset about the draconian measures to tackle #coronavirus emergency and are protesting against the central government as they have not been involved in the drafting. As lockdown was due to start shortly, now a delay is possible
NEW. While the silence of Italy’s government gets increasingly louder, Piemonte governor Alberto Cirio hints that PM Conte will sign the #coronavirus lockdown decree tomorrow morning after reading the suggestions he and other Northern Italy authorities are going to table tonight.
BREAKING. Italy PM Conte confirms in a extraordinary late night press conference: from tomorrow on Lombardy and other zones in Northern Italy will be on lockdown for weeks due to #Coronavirus - with a few exceptions added at the 11th hour. But still “red zones”. Quite something.
BREAKING. It looks like total chaos even in #Italy Serie A now. Parma-Spal were about to start today’s game but players have been instructed to stay in the dressing rooms. No one knows what’s going on. A potential - and brutal - stop to Serie A is being speculated.
UPDATE. According to Ansa agency the Italian government has asked #Italy’s football federation to immediately STOP all Serie A games. A dramatic decision is due to be taken shortly. The whole season might be now at stake and maybe suspended or worse cancelled.
NEW. Now it looks like Parma-Spal is due to start at 1.45 pm local time. Players are back to the pitch for the warm up. Big match Juventus Inter still on tonight, at least so far, but talks still ongoing. This is utter chaos in #Italy.
Italian leaders, from PM to the co-ruling Dem Zingaretti (now infected with #COVID19) and Milan mayor Sala, have dramatically switched their attitude to #Coronavirus in a few days: from the controversial (and naive?) “Milan doesn’t stop” (aim: save the economy) to “stay at home!”
