Conte says Italy planning stricter COVID restrictions

The Italian government is planning new restrictions over the holidays in an effort to curb the coronavirus outbreak, the country's Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte (pictured) stated.

"We must avert at all costs a third wave, because this would be devastating, also from the point of view of the loss of lives," the leader said in an interview with La Stampa.

Conte added that the government is aiming to innoculate 10 to 15 million people through a vaccination campaign that should last until the end of spring.
