Italy — a country that has been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic — is starting to see a glimmer of hope.

As the number of coronavirus cases begin to decrease, small shops across the country are starting to open their doors. ABC’s Megan Williams lives in Rome and updated Cheri Preston on what has been going on since the last time they spoke.

“Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte announced a while ago that the lockdown would begin to lift on May 4th. But what people are beginning to understand more and more is that it’s not a return to the way things used to be, that the lift of the nationwide lockdown will be very slow and very gradual,” Williams explained.
While the country begins to open up slowly, many Italians understand that their lives will not be the same as it was before the pandemic and complete normalcy is in the rear view mirror. Factories and shops will begin to reopen, while gathering at large events are not even a thought yet.

A whole new way of life, that’s the realization for many. Just like people in many cities across the United States, Italians fill the streets walking and interacting daily with those around them.

“Everybody’s talking about trace and track — which some can be done — over the phone and by notifying people. But they haven’t even come up with an app yet,” Williams said.
Solutions are currently being floated around on ways to treat the virus, though nothing is set in stone. Testing for antibodies, finding a vaccine and an app to track COVID-19 patients, are all viable concepts. Though, due to privacy issues, handing over too much information to tech companies or the government make citizens uneasy.
