Italy has been under total lockdown since March 13, as coronavirus cases continue to spread rapidly through the country.
But some residents have not heeded lawmakers' orders. Some Italian officials said they have seen people wandering empty cities, gathering at parks to play games and walking their dogs.
Some Italian mayors have been using social media to share their strongly worded video messages urging citizens to stay home.
“I’m hearing some of you would like to throw graduation parties. We will send the police over. With flamethrowers.”
“Where are you all going? You and your dogs!”
“You can’t play ping-pong. Go home and play some video games.”
“I’m the mayor of this city. I will make you follow this decree. I don’t want excuses. You must go home.”
“Getting in a mobile hairdresser? What is that for? Do you realize the casket will be closed?”
“I saw a fellow citizen amiably jog up and down the street, accompanied by a dog that was visibly worn out. I stopped and told him, ‘Look, this isn’t a film. You are not Will Smith in “I Am Legend.”
