The Leftist government of Italy has declared a 'national emergency' and essentially locked down the northern part of the country, closing schools and limiting travel, and gatherings, as new cases skyrocket, almost 80 at the time of this post.
Opposition figure and previous Interior Minister Matteo Salvnini ripped the politicians in power for not testing migrants entering the country.
“I think of the controls on who enters and leaves Italy: obviously something is not working,” Salvini said in comments reported by Il Giornale reported Breitbart.
The League (Lega) leader went on to add that “it is essential that, from today (if they haven’t already done it yesterday), anyone who enters Italy, by any means of transport, from the raft to the aeroplane, be checked. And if it comes from some areas, it will be isolated for fifteen days. As other countries do.”
Salvini added that he would be returning to Milan stating that he found the situation “worrying.”
