    Since Monday, the new governmental decree has been in force in Italy, banning bars and restaurants from working after 6:00 pm, as well as closing theatres, cinemas, gyms, swimming pools, spa-centres and casinos. The measures will stay in effect at least until November 24.

    People have gathered in Milan this Thursday, 30 October, for a new round of protests over the latest COVID-19 restrictions imposed in Italy.

    Dozens of people have been detained in Italy's major cities amid a wave of violent protests that has sprung up in response to the reintroduction of social distancing measures following a surge in new COVID-19 cases.

    Like most other countries in Europe, Italy has faced a spike in daily registered COVID-19 cases throughout October. Within the context, the government has limited bars' and restaurants' working hours, while several Italian regions — namely Lombardy, Lazio and Campania — have imposed curfews in response to the increased infection rate. The restrictions include the closure of gyms, cinemas and swimming pools, as well as bars and restaurants at 18:00 local time (17:00 GMT).
