Yet another opera house, the Teatro Municipale di Piacenza, has announced they are closing due to the Coronavirus outbreak. This news comes after a series of theater closings and performance cancellations due to the spread of the Coronavirus across Italy.
Italy's Prime Minister, Giuseppe Conte, announced the lockdown of over a dozen cities and no travel is permitted under any circumstances. Residents are being enforced by the police and armed forces patrolling the perimeters. The Prime Minister recently stated that “we need to stop the panic” surrounding the Coronavirus outbreak as supermarket shelves are emptied due to the paranoia and panic.
