Italy will gradually scrap almost all Covid-19 restrictions starting at the end of March, Prime Minister Mario Draghi said.

“We are taking fundamental steps toward reopening,” Draghi said during a press conference in Rome on Thursday. “We are closely watching how the pandemic develops, and we are ready to adapt these measures to its evolution.”
