Covid: lockdown imposed in Abruzzo region

 The central area of ​​Abruzzo was put under lockdown on Wednesday after being classified as one of the red areas with a high risk of COVID-19 infection in Italy. 


The southern part of Puglia also looks set to turn red soon. The government has introduced a three-tier restriction system based on the regional COVID risk: yellow, orange and red. 


Currently, Campania, Tuscany, Calabria, Lombardy, Piedmont and Valle d’Aosta are red, plus the autonomous province of Bolzano. 


Umbria, Basilicata, Liguria, Puglia, Sicily, Emilia Romagna, Friuli Venezia Giulia and Marche belong to the orange region, and the restrictions are slightly looser. 


The rest of the country is medium risk-yellow. The Italian regional meeting on Tuesday called on the government to use only five criteria to determine which level the region should belong to, instead of the current 21.
