For quite a month, Italians had heard of the 'Corona Virus' in China, having seen the stories on the news about how the Chinese Government was handling the epidemic. This news appeared like something that was from a faraway land that would never hit the Italian Peninsula because it had been the type of situation that only happened to 'others', quite normal response, very similar to many other populations responded. Thus, people were slow to place any emergency plans into place. At one point in early January, it had been suggested that an Italian manager come up with an emergency plan, but this had not been the primary time this manager had been advised that establishing rules to guard people against the traditional flu was so as. However, one had to think positively instead of living in fear of the Corona Virus, which was considered 'unlikely' to spread beyond China.
People from all backgrounds, not just Italians, tend to be more favorable of watching life from a positive point of view; however, planning for the simplest is usually the equivalent of kicking the bucket down the road to somebody else. Politicians are now trying to seek out an answer to assist small businesses that face difficulties during this trying period, and money is being allocated to assist families with children who got to keep a mother or father reception to observe the youngsters whose schools have recently been closed. On the surface, these seem to be the simplest solutions to problems facing the country, but the long-term effects could potentially bury the state in outstanding debt, causing difficulties for future generations.
Not only have hugs, kisses, and handshakes been banned. Soccer games hospitable fans have also been banned for thirty days by the decreet of Giuseppe Conte, the Prime Minister of Italy. This has saddened the bulk of Italians, although many argue that even soccer players should have the proper to stay their distance from each other. Furthermore, all sports events must be held behind closed doors until the third of April, something that is still incredible within the country known for kisses on the cheeks.
COVID-19 has interfered dramatically with the practice of faith, especially the Catholic religion, during February and March 2020. Yesterday, the author visited the Church of Santo Stefano in Borgomanero, where custodians had just cleaned the floors and disinfected the church. Not a living soul was to be found, neither a priest nor a tourist, which allowed the author to specialize in the frescoes and therefore the beautiful stained-glass windows in silence. If one travels across Italy this month, he or she is going to encounter numerous churches without parishioners because people are naturally afraid to satisfy each other in closed spaces regardless of how large and accommodating they could be. it's been recommended that priests remove the water from Catholic Churches for fear of spreading the virus. Although citizens and tourists can visit holy shrines, church services need to be conducted via television and the internet. Furthermore, churches are closed because, in recent years, people have begun to steal religious artifacts from them when the churches and shrines aren't guarded.
The author has been researching what's happening within the churches throughout Italy; however, there's far more information available about soccer games and therefore the survival of the economy, which seems to be the most focus immediately. as an example, within the news one finds much information about saving the reputation of 'Made in Italy', so low-level employees are forced to figure even harder than before as they hope other countries will still demand their products in times of trouble. a corporation that had had to quit producing medical face masks for fifteen years (due to Chinese competition), suddenly had to reopen its doors to assist meet the requirements of the Italian population that didn't have enough masks to guard citizens against COVID-19.
Not having enough masks was ironic during a country known for its Venetian Carnival celebration. Sadly, Venetian Carnival parades had to be canceled this year for fear of contagion, causing the country to lose many tourist dollars and initiating the present crisis in Italian tourism. consistent with Assoturismo, ninety percent of hotel bookings in Rome are canceled, and therefore we have issued a level-3 warning to its citizens, stating that they ought to avoid visit Italy in March. Travelers who visit Italy are required to remain home for 14 days after returning to us. a well-known leader of the Five Star Party was worried that such travel restrictions might cause discrimination against Italians and 'Made in Italy'. Many members of Los Angeles Lega believe a bailout amounting to 50 billion euros.
Citizens who wont to hate watching the news because they typically detest politics are now glued to the TV to ascertain what is going to happen next, whether or not they ought to refill on food and masks, whether or not they're going to attend work, and who will help them recover from the crisis.
On a positive note, unlike most Americans who need to worry about paying much money to be treated for the Corona Virus, Italians know they're going to not combat a load of private debt to buy initial testing and further cures. The Sistema Sanitario Nazionale aims to heal all Italian citizens also as those that have an acceptable visa to be within the country. Notwithstanding these good intentions, there's the likelihood that the health system will become overburdened with too many patients to worry about during the crisis. for instance, during a message written at 12:30 on the third of March, the Piemonte Region announced that straightforward surgical procedures that utilize the operating rooms have had to be suspended (if they're not urgent procedures) so as to assure that the diffusion of the virus is contained.
On the fourth of March, the govt decreed that each one school and universities would be closed for a month until the fifteenth of March although they're allowed to offer lessons online when possible with the goal of stopping the spread of the virus or a minimum of slowing down its spread. Until now, most Italians are suspicious of online education; therefore, most teachers haven't had training in the way to convert to the web platform; nor have most students been prepared for this new learning curve. Fortunately, this experience will change the Italian mindset, in order that everyone will learn to utilize the web for learning, telecommuting, and flexitime.
The Decree of the Prime Minister of the Council (DPCM) advises citizens to limit exiting the house if they're over the age of 65, to refrain from shaking hands, to refrain from kissing and hugging, and to avoid visiting relations in hospice or in assisted living. Citizens are advised to not go on to the emergency rooms, but that they ought to dial 112 before getting into order to assure they're not positive with the Corona Virus.
The Lombardia Region, having closed the gyms and swimming pools, had also ordered its citizens to not attend the local health clubs. many voters living in Lombardia interpreted the orders differently, thus deciding to travel to use the game clubs within the nearby Piemonte Region. Therefore, the Mayor of Novara, one of the cities in Piemonte, had to order that each one of the city's health clubs is closed. Likewise, some people have tried to flee the Red Zones of containment in Lombardia to succeed in their families elsewhere. One example was that of two public school teachers from the southern town of Irpinia who had been ordered to not leave Codogno, but who returned home to Irpinia near Naples as fast as they might where they were forced to be quarantined with their families, causing the whole condominium to possess to be quarantined.
Whether museums should be kept open during the COVID-19 crisis remains a subject for debate amongst art enthusiasts. Museums absorb much money while also attracting much-needed tourists from across the world. Moreover, foreign tourists need to pay the much-needed tourist taxes, referred to as the Tassa di soggiorno, which goes to be missed by the cities of Rome, Florence, and Venice (as well as many other cities) if tourism decreases, to not mention the tickets to museums which are sometimes higher for non-citizens. Italians themselves like to visit museums throughout their country, in order that they know they're going to be disappointed if they find museums closed for a month.
The movies, concert halls, and theaters have opened once more, but the Italian TV news has instructed people to go away space between themselves et al. One suggestion is to go away a vacant seat between every two seats, and this could be organized by the owners of the venue once they sell the tickets. consistent with TV reports, entertainment enthusiasts are slow to urge out once more. Whereas many Italians aren't in the least scared of getting to the cinema, there has been a humongous decrease in sales as evidenced by empty theaters and concert halls. Over the past weekend (March 1-2, 2020), consistent with the Associazione Generale Italiana Spettacolo (AGIS), there was a forty-four percent decrease in ticket sales for various sorts of entertainment.
Since Italians like to eat fresh foods, they're less susceptible to stocking abreast of food for the crisis. While Americans typically refill on canned vegetables, frozen foods, and food in glass jars, Italians like better to buy fresh in the least times--a great habit, but it'd be useful in an emergency to possess something with an extended expiration date. consistent with an Italian shopper, "It was weird that they were buying tons of eggs and prosciutto." Italian shoppers specialize in purchasing fresh vegetables, fruit, tomatoes, bread, pasta, and rice, the last two of which admittedly have long shelf lives.
