Albania closes the borders with Italy today and many passengers who had purchased a plane ticket surrendered after the cancellation of the flights, choosing the ferries.
In the port of Bari today 1200 people have descended as reported by the well-known Italian-Albanian businessman and journalist Carlo Bollino, who harshly attacked the Port Authority of Bari for the failure to comply with the emergency measures.
Anti-coronavirus measures in the port of Bari? 1200 people from Albania (which has now closed all passenger connections with Italy), remained in line for hours this morning, waiting for passport control.
The police gate could be accessed five at a time, in the meantime, outside, people remained crowded in this way, in spite of government orders to keep the safety distances to avoid contagion. But the port of Bari is known to be an independent republic with its own rules.
No doctors either boarding last night or disembarking this morning to check travelers' health.
And no form of organization to impose or allow for safety distances. Now that passenger traffic with Albania is suspended, perhaps it is the right time that the port authority will be able to see for yourself how much these passengers who have been harassed in this way for years have been worth in terms of income, and what it will mean not having them anymore (even if only for a while).
