South Tyrol Italy

South Tyrol Italy - Coronavirus Alert In Italy:

The situation in Italy after the Corona outbreak remains very serious. The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) has now classified a region as a risk area. This causes misunderstanding.

Italy has taken the next far-reaching step in the bitter struggle against the rapid spread of the coronavirus - which represents a temporary state of emergency in the country.

At first, educational institutions and cultural sites had been closed. To protect against Sars-CoV-2 infections, restrictions in the judicial system, such as trials and other public appointments, are now planned.

The government announced in early Saturday morning in Rome. Trials on less serious crimes should, therefore, be postponed.

The details should be decided on-site in individual cases. According to media reports, urgent matters should be excluded from this measure.

About arrests, for example. Hearings in the form of video conferences are also possible, explained Justice Minister Alfonso Bonafede.

From now on, the work of the judicial offices will be suspended for two weeks - as during the summer break - the La Repubblica newspaper quotes the minister. From March 23, the new options for postponing individual processes will apply.

The regions of Lombardy and Emilia-Romagna are most affected. In South Tyrol - which Germany now classifies as a risk area - there are four infected people.

South Tyrol itself has so far only registered two Sars CoV-2 infections. One of them has not yet been confirmed by the relevant authorities in Rome. The second person is already on the way to recovery.
