Italy After Coronavirus – level 1

12-06-2020 07:00

The coronavirus is in Italy. The situation is very bad. More than 230,000 get sick. 33,000 people die from the coronavirus there. Now, it seems that the situation is getting better.

People from some countries can travel to Italy again. Restaurants and pubs open. People can go out. People can have fun with friends.

Italians are very lively and happy people. They love to meet other people. They spend their free time in the streets.

During the coronavirus pandemic, this is not possible. Italians are very sad. The streets are empty.

Now, Italians feel free again. However, they know that they must follow some rules. It is very important that the coronavirus does not come back.

Officials hope that tourists start to return to Italy.

Difficult words: lively (full of life), pandemic (a sickness that makes many people in many places sick at the same time), empty (without people), hope (to believe that good things will happen).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
