Italy’s Second Wave of COVID Infections Hits a New High

ROME — Italy’s second wave of coronavirus infections have hit a new high, with 4,458 confirmed cases, the highest number of new infections since April.

Italy’s southern Campania region added 757 cases, with the virus bearing down in southern regions far less equipped to handle it.

Campania, the region that surrounds Naples, in recent days has ordered bars and restaurants closed by 11 p.m. and was nearly a week ahead of the national government in mandating masks outdoors.

Campania’s governor, Vincenzo De Luca has warned: “Let’s understand one another: We have to return to the rigorous behavior of February, March and April, otherwise we’ll be hurt.”
