Phase two: Italy considers how to move on after coronavirus peak

Nearly a month after a nationwide lockdown was implemented to prevent the spread of the virus that was ravaging through Italy’s north, there are government discussions and public debate about moving to “phase two” – a period during which citizens will have to learn to live with the virus and one which could risk another outbreak.

Italy is in the unfortunate position of being two to three weeks ahead of other European countries in fighting the coronavirus pandemic.
As the country with the most fatalities – more than 17,000 recorded coronavirus deaths, Italy’s next moves will be closely watched.

The country has been reviewing its lockdown measures every two weeks by presidential decree; the next time they will be revisited will be April 13.
