Confessions of Moldovan woman who got stuck in Italy

A Moldovan woman planned to vacation at her children in Italy’s Parma for two weeks, but will now stay there for at least a month given the measures taken to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus. She has to stay in the apartment and cannot go out, IPN reports.

Ludmila Kostetski arrived in Italy on February 29. She went to visit her daughter and to spend time with her granddaughter. During the first days, she could go for walks, but the red alert was then issued and she could not go out during the first week of March. The people are allowed to go only to work, to grocery stores, drugstores or health facilities on condition that they have the necessary papers and an epidemiological certificate.

Ludmila Kostetski related that when the red alert was issued, the population started to behave responsibly and gave up going out, if only in emergencies. Two persons concomitantly cannot enter shops. The people get supplies so as to avoid going out. Disposable gloves are provided to everyone in shops and drugstores. Wearing protective masks on the street and in units of transport is mandatory. The streets are patrolled by the police and the passersby are warned not to stay long in public places if only in emergencies.

The woman said she follows attentively the developments, including in Moldova. She was to travel home today, but the flights were cancelled and the airline informed her that her ticket was changed for April 4. She said it is nice spending time with her elder daughter, but her husband and the other child are waiting for her home.

Flights to and from Italy were suspended on March 12.
