Italy bans Chistmas midnight Mass

The Italian government is banning midnight Christmas Mass and limiting travel between regions to prevent a possible “third surge” of the coronavirus. Italy has lost almost 60,000 people to COVID-19. It was the first country after China to have been crippled by the global pandemic. On December 3 Italy lost 993 people to the infection, a 21% increase in deaths over 14 days ago. [1]
