In an unprecedented move, Italian Prime Minister Guiseppe Conter has closed all nightclubs in Italy in response to the coronavirus.
It is part of a measure that has closed museums, schools and other large public venues across the country. In fact, the day after this announcement, Conter put the entire country under quarantine, effectively closing or eliminating all public gatherings.
The measure is in effect until April 3.
There have been more than 230 deaths in Italy related to coronavirus, with 36 in the past 24 hours. The government has reported nearly 6,000 confirmed coronavirus cases, the most in Europe.
“We want to guarantee the health of our citizens,” Conte said. “We understand that these measures will impose sacrifices, sometimes small and sometimes very big.”
