Good News, Bad News
Today, for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic, Italy has seen a decrease on the overall number of people infected by Coronavirus. The news from my home country are still improving, intensive care units are no longer jammed and people can start thinking of a slow recovery.
In this part of the world, the other hand, the Prime Minister went on TV again today at 5 pm. In all his previous speeches, he was wearing a pink shirt, but today he decided to change the color to dark blue. He announced that the circuit-breaker measures, the local trademark for a lock-down, are extended to the 1st of June and from tomorrow will be tougher. The rationale is not easy to grasp, but people were impressed by the new shirt color. I guess that it is what it is and we just have to live with it.
