Italy looks to reopen borders next month as lockdown measures ease

By

Rome / Milan: Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte outlined further restrictions on Saturday ’s movements, including opening borders to travelers from Europe starting next month to lift the world ’s strictest coronavirus Blockade one.

As shops, bars and restaurants will reopen on Monday, the government also announced that people will no longer need to defend their travels in the area and will be able to meet friends and family.

He said: “People will be able to go wherever they want-shops, mountains, lakes or the sea.”

At the time of the announcement, the world ’s third-highest number of coronavirus deaths in Italy fell to 153 on Saturday, the lowest level since March 9.

Until the end of Italy ’s “Republic Day” holiday on June 2, travel between the region and abroad will be banned to prevent large-scale travel during this long holiday weekend.

However, all travel restrictions will be lifted from June 3, and travelers from EU countries will be able to enter without quarantine, which brings hope to the vital tourism industry before the summer.

Conte said that the decision to cancel the roadside was a “calculated risk”, but he added: “We are facing this risk and we must accept it, otherwise we will never start again.”
