Lombardy: “This is not the time to go out”
However, the Lombardy region. “This is not the time to let our guard down. The circular circulated by the Ministry of the Interior risks creating a devastating psychological effect by frustrating the efforts and sacrifices made so far.” The Councilor for Welfare affirms it, Giulio Gallera, defining the idea of the walk “a madness”. “The ministerial measure – he adds – could be understood as a signal of easing of the containment measures taken so far. Rigid, important measures, which however allowed to contain the curve of the coronavirus contagions”. “The light at the end of the tunnel – concludes Gallera – risks going away or completely turning off when ambiguous messages are transmitted: the useful indication for everyone must be to stay at home, for a few more weeks. Only in this way will we succeed to defeat this sneaky and invisible enemy. ”
The president of Ragione Campania also follows the same line, Vincenzo De Luca, which speaks of “very serious message”.
