The new decree of the President of the Council of Ministers Conte closes economic activities that are not strictly essential
Almost 1500 people infected in Trentino

A month after the beginning of the emergency, as news of the first cases in Lombardy date back to February 22, yesterday - Sunday 22 March- the people infected in Trentino increased to 1480. The deaths - the first occurred on March 12- reached 35. Yesterday 173 new cases were registered. Meanwhile, the President of the Council of Ministers Giuseppe Conte has signed a new decree which lays down further restrictive measures for the Coronavirus emergency, in particular by stopping not essential economic-productive activities. Among the permitted activities, there are those related to the agriculture and food supply chain (including supermarkets and basic necessities stores) and to the information industry, banking and postal services, home assistance, including babysitting, domestic workers and caregivers.

It is also forbidden "to all people to move by public or private transportation from the municipality in which they are currently located, except for proven work needs, or for urgent health reasons". The restrictions on travel are therefore extended, both with public and private transport; as the previous decree allowed to return to one's home or domicile.

“I want to thank the Trentino people for the spirit with which they are facing this trial” - said the president Maurizio Fugatti during the daily press conference. “We know how difficult it is to change one's lifestyle. In this month I can say that the people of Trentino have shown that they are sympathetic and supportive, and that thay demonstrated, as they have always done in their history, a great civic sense. We are committed to trying to increase the number of tampons on our territory, especially to keep safe those who work in the health sector, to whom we are also trying to guarantee the necessary protections, in terms of antivirus masks and gowns. We are confronting this as a national problem, each day with the government and with the other regions ".
