This situation here in Italy is serious. The country on full lock-down. All businesses, and schools are closed. Only the grocery store, and pharmacy will remain open. It is recommended that only one person per household leave for food or medicine. Italy has adopted the slogan “Io resto a casa” or “I will stay home”. The people initially had much resistance on being quarantined. Many ignored the warning, and many more have gotten sick. Now with most of Italy adhering to the temporary regulations. Italy is now positioned to turn the corner, and work on its recovery.
