It is noted that in the morning, February 23, Italy confirmed another 34 cases of infection with the coronavirus COVID-2019. The total number of confirmed coronavirus infected is 113.
In this regard, the Italian government imposed movement restrictions in areas in the north of the country where cases of infection with the coronavirus COVID-19 were especially prevalent. People are not allowed to leave their municipalities, and entry is also closed.
In general, about 50,000 citizens in 11 municipalities and five regions were affected by special measures. For violation of prohibitions, 3 months of prison are provided.
As we reported before, in northern Italy, 79 citizens were infected with the coronavirus, and authorities, therefore, restricted their freedom of movement in 11 municipalities.
"79 people were affected by the coronavirus in five regions: 54 cases were recorded in Lombardy, 17 in Veneto, two in Emilia-Romagna, two in Lazio, and one in Piedmont," the head of the Civil Protection Department, Angelo Borrelli, stated this.
