With growing cases of the Corona virus- spreading within and out of the United States, countries like Italy have decided to shut things down. Literally, officials have called for a shut down.
"Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte signeda decree on Sunday imposing restrictions to the movement of people in the northern region of Lombardy — the epicenter of the outbreak in Italy — and 14 other provinces across the north, until April 3. The measures (an extension of a preexisting lockdown of 11 towns in Lombardy and Veneto) now affect more than 16 million people, banning them from moving in and out of those areas." -www.cnbc.com
