In Lombardy's capital authorities have ordered that bars, night clubs and public places be closed from 6pm till 6am at least until Sunday. Luca Scanni, a local restaurateur, explains the impact of this decision on businesses like his.

 

Following the regional decree demanding the closure after 18:00 of bars, discotheques, pubs and also museums and cinemas, as a drastic measure for containing the spreading of COVID-19, only restaurants and commercial places were left open. The ban will last, at least, seven days (until March, the 1st).
