‘This is not a film’: Italian mayors rage at virus lockdown dodgers

Footage of officials berating citizens for flouting Covid-19 quarantine rules goes viral

A compilation video of mayors lambasting people for flouting coronavirus quarantine rules has struck a chord with Italians, who have shared it in their thousands on social media.

People have been jogging, playing ping-pong on the beach and walking their dogs more often than usual as an excuse to venture out.

One of the mayors said: “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. So, you have to go home.’”

Another said: “Where the fuck are you all going? You and your dogs … which must have an inflamed prostate?”

The appeal came as the Italian government banned any travel inside the country and closed all non-essential businesses to stem the spread of coronavirus after a weekend in which more than 1,400 people died.

Supermarkets, banks, pharmacies and post offices are among businesses permitted to keep trading.

Italians are banned from moving across municipalities other than for “non-deferrable and proven business or health reasons or other urgent matters”.

The Corriere della Sera newspaper reported that on Sunday police stopped 120 people from Milan who were trying to board a train to the south of the country.

Citizens must complete a self-declaration form to justify why they were leaving their home, with the only valid reasons being for work, health-related issues or to go to the supermarket.

Although the majority of Italy’s population of 62 million are complying, police have bolstered controls across the country and more than 40,000 people have been fined for breaking the rules within the first week of the lockdown. The army has been patrolling the streets in some places.

Officers have also come across people who were dishonest on the forms, writing that they were “going shopping” when instead they were doing something else.

Roma Today reported on Saturday that two men went out to sell drugs. Others have written they went out for “love” so that they could meet their partners, and two women wrote they were visiting their elderly and sick aunt, who turned out to be a healthy woman in her 40s. Others said they were going to work, when in fact they were meeting friends for a game of cards.
