'Stay at home!': Italian mayors send emotional plea to residents — video 5
Town, city and regional mayors have been sending emotional pleas to residents to stay indoors after witnessing people flouting a nationwide lockdown by going jogging, playing ping pong and taking 'exhausted dogs' for long walks.
The appeal came as the Italian government banned any travel inside the country and closed all non-essential businesses as it desperately tries to stem the spread of a coronavirus 

This is how the mayors of Bari, Messina, Lucera, Gualdo Tadino, the Governor of Campania, and the mayor of Reggio Calabria have addressed their constituents

These mayors all sound like pissed off dads when their kids screw up. Pray and hope Italy can beat this thing very soon.

The one who wants to send the Police with flamethrower is Vincenzo De Luca. In Italy he is called "The sheriff", you can imagine why. His way of speaking is hilarious, really.

He didn’t say incontinent dogs, he said with these dogs with that have the prostate inflamed ...lol ... cause basically in the beginning of lockdown people were using the excuse to walk the dogs to get out of home .... cause walking the dog is allowed .... but it’s alllowed only for some minutes, near home and only the time the dog empty bladder and intestines

My love to the guy with flamethrowers -this is the message. But all their messages are heartbreaking- they really care about their people. Love and prayers for Italy from Serbia.
