 Italy is one of the countries found in the Continent of Europe and it’s populary known as the Headquarters of Catholic Church.

It is also a second Country where Covid-19 pandemic was declared in the world after Wuhan in China.

Despite lockdowns, the country faced a total destruction of the pandemic as many people died. It has over 100,000 deaths and over 2 Millions confirmed cases.

Now, the government is planning to hold yet another three weeks lockdown and setting map on how the measures should be.

Last week, the GIMBE health think tank warned that Italy had entered a third wave, as health data confirmed a sharp increase in infection numbers.

In the February 24 to March 2 2021, period coronavirus cases rose by three times from the previous week to more than 123,000, the highest figure since early December, GIMBE said.

With the current trend widely expected to continue, Health minister Roberto Speranza said more red zones are likely to be declared across the country on Friday under the current system of regional and local measures.

“We’re monitoring the curve and checking which measures are most appropriate,” he said on Monday. “I expect the variants to have an impact and that more regions will go red.”

Several of Italians leading medical and scientific experts have in recent weeks said that a strict lockdown is “urgently” needed, while the government’s advisory panel, the Scientific Technical Committee (CTS) has been urging the government to adopt more stringent restrictions.
