Italy: Protesters demand ‘freedom’ in ongoing Naples rallies against COVID measures

Protesters took to the streets of Naples for another round of rallies against new coronavirus restrictions on Monday. Protesters had assembled at Piazza Plebiscito and later marched on the regional government building chanting for «freedom». Protesters have been rallying against the regional governor who has pushed for stricter measures, including a nighttime curfew between 23:00 to 05:00 and the closure of most of Campania's schools, where Naples is located, in an attempt to slow down the spread of the coronavirus. The new round of measures also includes a countrywide closure of bars and restaurants at 6:00 pm, as well as shutting gyms, cinemas, and swimming pools. Italy has registered 542,789 cases of the coronavirus with 37,479 related deaths, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.
