The government of Rome is calling on all domestic and foreign tourists to leave the quarantine zones in northern Italy because of the corona virus.

As the government announced in Rome, all tourists should leave the quarantine zones in northern Italy and tourist trips there should be avoided. The information comes from a letter from the Ministry of Transport in Rome. It also says that train stations and airports are open so that tourists can start their journey home.

Strict precautions

All other tourists in Italy are advised to follow the precautions taken by the Italian health authorities. The strict precautionary measures are currently being discussed, and the affected regions in northern Italy have asked to be interviewed by Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte.

15 Italian areas affected

In the fight against the coronavirus epidemic, the Italian government previously quarantined areas in the north of the country with several million inhabitants. Economically strong Lombardy and 14 other areas are largely cordoned off, including the economic metropolis of Milan and the tourist magnet Venice.

The Lombardy region and 14 provinces are affected by the measures. These are Modena, Parma, Piacenza, Reggio Emilia, Rimini, Pesaro and Urbino, Alessandria, Asti, Novara, Verbano Cusio Ossola, Vercelli, Padua, Treviso and Venice, said Conte. The entry and exit bans hit more than 16 million people in the middle of the country.
