Italy, including the Vatican City and San Marino have been on complete lockdown since March 9, because of the high number of infected cases and deaths from coronavirus.
As of March 23, 2020, the pandemic has already killed more than 6,000 people and infected over 63,000 in the country alone.
And despite these numbers and the severity of the outbreak within the country, there are still some of those people that actually think that it’s okay to go for a jog, or take a stroll along the park, acting as if it’s just another regular day.
Some mayors of these Italian towns and cities are downright fed up with these people that are blatantly ignoring all the rules that have been set forth, that they’ve ranted on social media, just to stop these stubborn residents from taking advantage and frolicking outdoors.
One of the best lines from these videos is from that mayor who had to actually tell someone that he wasn’t ‘Will Smith in I Am Legend.’ This mayor saw a citizen who was going for a jog along the road, accompanied by his dog that was obviously tired from the exercise.
”I stopped him and said, ‘Look, this isn’t a movie. You are not Will Smith in I Am Legend. Go home,” the mayor said.
Another one goes on ‘full-rage mode’ and drops the f-word while he was voicing out his frustrations.
“Where the f*@k are you all going? You and your dogs…. Which must have an inflated prostate?“
These videos and compilations have been shared all over social media, and especially Twitter – where people can’t get enough of it and just hope that their own mayors and other government officials can follow these Italians’ examples.
Since the virus has arrived in Italian shores on January 31, more than 7,400 people have recovered from coronavirus.
