Speed Reading — Lockdown - Level 1 — 100 wpm 

This is the text (if you need help).

Mayors in Italy are making sure people follow lockdowns. Italy is under lockdown. It is one of the countries worst affected by COVID-19. It has over 80,000 infections, and 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. Police have fined over 100,000 people for being in the streets without a good reason.

Angry mayors posted messages on social media. One said he was tired of people walking dogs many times a day. He said: "Where are you going with these incontinent dogs? You need to stay home. People are dying." The leader of Italy's worst affected area said: "Too many people are still out and about." Italy's Prime Minister said: "Everyone's efforts are needed." Italians started a worldwide trend of singing from their balcony to cheer people up.
