Rome, November 4: Italy will impose anti-virus night curfew from Thursday on account of the rising coronavirus cases. According to an AP report, there would be a nationwide curfew and tighter restrictions on the country’s regions where infections are surging and hospitals risk running out of beds for COVID-19 patients.
The regions that will be hit with the strictest limits are to be announced today. According to reports, the restrictions include at least a two-week ban on entering or leaving the region's territory and closure of all shops except essential ones like food stores.

There are several countries across the world which have announced the fresh lockdowns in a bid to stem the second wave of coronavirus pandemic. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced a second national lockdown for England for four weeks to prevent a "medical and moral disaster". He said Christmas may be "very different" but he hoped taking action now would mean families can gather. Pubs, restaurants, gyms and non-essential shops will have to close.
