As the media announced the planned restrictions on the north before the government, causing a mass exodus from the more obviously infected areas and thus promoting widespread infection, there was really no option but to extend the measures nationwide.

I’m a passionate supporter of a free press, but with freedom comes responsibility.

This too will pass, in time.

Some Italians have been putting this spin on things, but more practically, Italy had 1800 extra cases in 24 hours.

Italy is introducing severe restrictions on all but essential travel across the entire country.
That why I cancelled for the near future my walk which I should have started on the 1st of April, Ryan air comunicate via email that my flight is cancel and I could get my money back, lost all my other ticket, to rich John O Groats to walk afterword to Roma. With all the Country I had to go cross and the virus will eventually surface in all of them as is already in the EU for more than two months,
as there, is no wall that can stop the virus the risk to be quarantine in each and every Country is to great, my only hope now is that in the next couple of months all over the EU the virus stop spreading.

Seems that the Adriatic ferries are succumbing to pressure too. Anek which runs the Superfast ferries between the Italian ports and the extension of the Via Francigena nel Sud towards Jerusalem are now starting to cancel.

ANEK LINES taking into consideration the emerging circumstances occurred because of the COVID-19 outbreak, wish to inform the passengers with tickets for the Adriatic routes that:

- Tickets issued with the Early Booking discount can be converted to open date tickets and no difference between Early Booking and brochure fares has to be paid. Passengers can rebook to a new travel date until 31 December 2020 with the Early Booking discount.

- Passengers wishing to cancel their tickets to any Adriatic route because of the COVID-19 outbreak can do so with full refund. Above policy is in effect until 3 April 2020 and concerns tickets for travel up to and including 30 April 2020.

ANEK LINES will monitor the outbreak aftereffect and, if needed, will revert with further cancellation measures.
Seems a bit late to react to the Italian restrictions but better late than never.
