CORONA VIRUS EMERGENCY ITALY

FOR THE THIRD WEEK IN A ROW NORTHERN ITALY HAS BEEN ON A LOCKDOWN, SCHOOLS AND UNIVERSITIES ARE CLOSED, MANY JOBS AND EVENTS ARE SUSPENDED, MY STUDENT SCHOLARSHIP HAS BEEN SUSPENDED AS ALL THE COURSES AND EXAMS HAVE BEEN BLOCKED AS WELL, THE SCHOOL WHERE I WORK AS A TEACHER HAS BEEN CLOSED FOR 3 WEEKS NOW, AND I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO WORK, GYMS THEATERS AND CINEMAS ARE CLOSED AND ANY SPORT OR PUBLIC EVENT OR GATHERING IS FORBIDDEN.  ANY JOB INTERVIEWS ALSO HAVE BEEN BANNED OR POSTPONED, FACTORIES ARE CLOSING BUSINESSES ARE GOING BANKRUPT. IT IS A REALLY BAD SITUATION THE GOVERNMENT HAS PUT US IN DUE TO THE SPREAD OF CORONA VIRUS. NEW MEASURES ALSO HAVE BEEN ENACTED . PEOPLE OVER 65 YEARS OLD ARE INVITED TO STAY HOME AND EVERYBODY SHOULD KEEP A DISTANCE OF AT LEAST 2 METERS FROM EACH OTHERS AND AVOID HUGS OR KISSES. I KNOW IT SOUNDS SURREAL OR A SCIENCE FICTION MOVIE STORY BUT IT IS ACTUALLY TRUE. IF YOU ARE NOT RICH YOU CANNOT WORK DUE TO CORONA VIRUS YOU CANNOT PAY YOUR RENT OR BUY FOOD TO EAT.  I DON'T QUALIFY FOR WELFARE OR HEALTH INSURANCE EITHER BEING A FOREIGNER AND A US RESIDENT. I REALLY HOPE THAT SOMEBODY CAN HELP DURING THIS TIME OF NEED UNTIL THE SITUATION WILL GET EVENTUALLY BETTER.
