On Wednesday Attilio Fontana, the Lombard governor, speaking on TV said that masks will be mandatory until there is a vaccine against coronavirus. “I have talked to many doctors and many scientists who say that the mask is the main means by which infection is avoided, and considering that it is annoying but not so dramatically annoying and that it allows us a practically normal life, I believe it is just bring it again until we are sure that the virus is defeated “.

“To the Italians – Fontana said – I think we should say that life can start to be normal life again but we must also say that those precautions (the mask, the distancing and avoiding the gatherings) must be maintained. One cannot think that everything has returned as before. We have regained a part of our freedom but still not a little bit. ”
