ITALY is set to impose a nationwide curfew after a decree was signed by the prime minister.
The curfew will begin from 10pm on Thursday, November 5 as Giuseppe Conte looks for further measures in order to stop the rampant spread of the coronavirus.
The curfew will run from 10pm to 5am.
Other measures were due to be announced by the PM, however, according to reports, this is the only one to be detailed so far.
It had been expected Conte would announce further non-essential businesses would be shut until December 3 to align with other European countries, and for Italy’s 20 regions to be classed with a three-tier system – red, orange and green – with the red states facing the most restrictive measures.
This regionalised approach would mean Conte’s government is desperately trying to resist a full nationwide lockdown approach, which has been adopted by countries including France, Ireland and England, to varying success.
Italy has been hit by a series of violent demonstrations in cities against previously announced shutdown measures.
