Italy began to implement a six-month emergency from January 31 to respond to the epidemic to prevent the epidemic from spreading further. It entered the state of “closing the city” from March 10, and closed the national food store from March 12.

Italy has extended the “closed city” measure twice, and the current “closed city” measure will continue until May 3.
