At ten in the evening, Giuseppe Conte goes on tv to announce that the now of the choices that are irrevocable has arrived. "The numbers tell us that we are having a major growth of the people in the icu and, unfortunately, of a deceased person," he says. "Our habits need to be changed now: we have to give up all of something for the good of Italy. We have to do this immediately, and we will succeed only if we will adapt to these rules that are more stringent". A decision for nothing painless, makes you understand the head of the government, adopted after having informed the Quirinale. Because "if at risk is the health of the citizens, you have to choose" he insists. And use manners. Therefore, the move will be allowed only in the cases strictly necessary; schools and universities will remain closed until 3 April and the championship will be stopped; the gatherings are prohibited. "The future is in our hands, for everyone to do their part," the final appeal is addressed to the public in order to comply with the new rules "with a sense of responsibility".
He tried to resist to the last, the premier. For a whole day he tried to stem the pressure on the Pd of the opposition and of the presidents of the Region who since the morning asked him all the same: containment measures for more drastic and homogeneous on the entire national territory to stop the epidemic. A series of restrictions without precedent, the lawyer pugliese tries up to the last to avoid for fear of the repercussions on the economy. When I read the latest newsletter of the civil Protection, more than 25 percent of infected people in less than twenty-four hours, she understands that "time there is." The evening brings together the capidelegazione of the government and gives the announcement: "In the peninsula, there will be a red zone", he was to say later in the press conference, "there will be Italy protected area". Already starting today. All of a single color, that of the maximum risk, without major differences between Lombardy and the rest of the Country.
mid-afternoon the governors had reiterated to the ministers Bulge, Hope and De Micheli, connected in a videoconference from Rome: the progression of the virus is awesome, we can wait no longer, serve measures the stronger the rules the same for everyone, otherwise it is chaos. Ready, in case of inertia of the executive, to make each for himself, adopting the individual ordinances of containment. "The local public must be close to 18" thundered the president of the Campania Vincenzo De Luca, "the opening of bars and restaurants, maintaining a distance of one meter is unmanageable and has no deferrals in reality". In line with the vice-president of the Lazio Daniele Leodori, who the day before on social had launched the campaign #iorestoacasa, yesterday adopted by the premier. "We need to make one red zone for all of Italy" the request for peremptory of the governor of puglia, Michele Emiliano, backed by the colleague of the Friuli Massimiliano Fedriga. A thrust impossible to curb. That Ball immediately became the bearer at the premier. Forcing him to capitulate.
By day, in both the Pd and Leu with the minister Hope had asked for the Count, the more severe. Invoked yesterday as well from the centre-right, which has proposed the appointment of a supercommissario emergency able to load on the shoulders of the management of the funds and the coordination of all the operations necessary to defeat the epidemic. A role very delicate to the Salvini is Berlusconi have made the name of Guido Bertolaso. Undermined in the last hours by Gianni De Gennaro. An option but not everyone in the government. Not the M5S, worried that a strong finish to commissariare the head of the civil protection banoo, close to Count. While the Pd has expressed some perplexity. But uncertainties and errors have convinced Palazzo Chigi that something must be changed. "We're thinking about what to do" tell you the Count at the end of the press conference, "I feel the opportunity of co-ordination in the supply of machinery and medical equipment. It is a role that could support the head of civil protection”.
