Activation reason:
Italy is currently facing a serious situation related to the Covid-19. The Head of the Civil Protection Department has been nominated as national emergency Coordinator and the entire National System has been activated to face the Emergency. From the first day of March, the entire Italian territory has been put on lock-down and further initiatives are being implemented to limit the spread of the disease. The Civil Protection needs to map all the temporary health facilities (such as triage facilities, field hospitals and so on) as well the gathering places in order to have a clear understanding of the current situation of the territory for the subsequent monitoring of activities and public spaces during the emergency.
