Codogno, Italy. - The authorities of northern Italy, including the city of Milan, decided on Sunday the closure of schools, museums, theaters, cinemas and meeting places before the multiplication of cases of coronavirus, which has caused in Three days three deaths.
The number of people infected in Italy with the dreaded virus reached 152, including the three deaths, according to the latest report submitted to the press by the head of Civil Protection, Angelo Borrelli, released AFP.

The third deceased person died in the town of Crema, 40 kilometers from Milan, according to Giullio Gallera, head of Health in the Lombardy region.
"This is an elderly lady, who was admitted to the oncology department in serious condition and had been infected with the coronavirus," Gallero explained during a press conference.




The three killed in Italy by the coronavirus were very sick and were elderly.

The Lombardy authorities, among the most industrialized regions of the country, whose capital is Milan, decided to close extremely symbolic points such as the cathedral, the famous Duomo and the La Scala theater.
The mayor of Milan, Giuseppe Sala, authorized a series of very strict measures, for a period of 7 to 15 days , to prepare the city for the arrival of the outbreak in that prosperous region, the economic engine of the country.
The government had decreed on the eve the total isolation of 11 northern cities, including 10 in Lombardy and 1 near Padua, in the Veneto Region, to which Venice belongs.
"Entrance or exit will not be allowed unless you present a special exemption," Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte announced.

This is the most extraordinary measure taken in Europe to contain the largest outbreak in the old continent.

The Carnival of Venice is suspended
For their part, the authorities of the Veneto region decided to suspend the Carnival of Venice, one of the largest tourist events organized by the city of canals every year.
The main focus of what could be the zero point of the COVID-19 virus in Europe is around Codogno, a town of 15,000 inhabitants, 60 kilometers from Milan.

The armed forces are authorized to enforce the new measures if necessary.

In several large cities contagions have been detected, including Turin, Milan, Venice and Bologna, so some have also arranged for the closure of schools and universities.
It is believed that "patient 1" in Lombardy is a 38-year-old man, Mattia, a researcher at the US multinational Unilever, based in Codogno and Casalpusterlengo, where 120 of the 160 employees have been tested.
Until now it is unknown how it was spread since the friend, who was believed to be the "zero patient" in Italy because in January he was in China, did not test positive.
Very sociable and athletic, Mattia participated in several marathons in early February, met for dinner with several friends and dedicated a few days to solidarity activities.
He involuntarily contaminated his 8-month-old pregnant wife, a friend with whom he played soccer and three regular customers of a local bar, as well as the doctors who treated him and patients at the Codogno hospital where he was admitted between Wednesday and Saturday for an onset of pneumonia.
The mystery remains so that since Friday night, with the exception of pharmacies, all bars, cafes, shops, offices, sports centers and even the church have remained closed in 11 locations.




"I am very afraid, we are living a really difficult situation," confessed Emanuela, a nurse who works closely with Codogno.


In addition to the anguish, anger also reigns in that thriving industrialized area, where supermarkets were literally assaulted in fear of a shortage.
"It's inhuman to fight for four sandwiches, it's just disgusting," Sante lamented.
In Milan, where Fashion Week parades continue, designer Giorgio Armani and dressmaker Laura Biagiotti decided to broadcast the parades of their new collections by video. Other firms such as Boss and Dolce and Gabbana kept their parades open to the public.
