Covid-19. Italian businessmen take to the streets in protest for restrictions

CEntente of entrepreneurs with small businesses in Italy, like restaurants, took to the streets in several cities, this Tuesday, to speak out against the measures to fight the new coronavirus that keeps the businesses closed and their families without income. In Rome, protesters tried to reach parliament, leading – as happened elsewhere – to clashes with the police.

Naples and Milan were also the scene of protests, with the Italians showing their discontent and facing the authorities “out of desperation”.

Business has been closed or on a ‘half-gas’ for 14 months in what is the second European country with the most deaths from Covid-19, just behind the United Kingdom, reports Reuters.

It should be remembered that Italy recorded, in the last 24 hours, 7,767 new cases of Covid-19 and 421 deaths related to the disease. According to the health authorities’ report, this Tuesday, April 6, the infection rate is now 6.9%.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, at least 3,686,707 positive cases of Covid-19 have been recorded in the country. 111,747 people died and 3,019,255 recovered. The remaining 555,705 still have the virus active.
