Mayors in Italy are making sure people follow lockdowns. Italy is one of the countries worst affected by COVID-19. It has 8,215 deaths - the most of any country in the world. Not everyone in Italy is following the rules. There are videos online of mayors in the streets telling people to go home.

Angry mayors posted messages online. One said he was tired of people walking dogs many times a day. He said: "Where are you going?...You need to stay home. People are dying." Italy's Prime Minister said: "Everyone's efforts are needed." Italians started a trend of singing from their balcony to cheer people up.
