Anasa news agency reported on Thursday that a birthday party was interrupted for Romelu Lukaku, the Belgian Inter Milan striker, as he was at dawn in the Italian city center, as he violated rules to counter the Kovid-19 did.
Milan police went to the hotel in the early hours of Thursday and found more than 20 people in a restaurant, the report said. Lukaku was having a party this Thursday to celebrate his 28th birthday.
The rule in Milan, which is one of the yellow areas of Italy, includes a curfew between 10pm and 5pm, and a fine is imposed as a result of the breach.
Lukaku scored a last-minute goal at home from Inter’s 3–1 Roma a few hours before the match.
Neither the club nor Milan police responded immediately when contacted by Reuters for comment.
The Ministry of Health said Italy reported 258 coronavirus-related deaths on Thursday, up from 198 the previous day, and the number of daily infections increased from 5,080 to 6,946.
Overall, the country has had 123,282 deaths associated with Kovid-19 since its outbreak last year, only one figure higher than the United Kingdom in Europe and the seventh largest in the world and 4.1 million cases.
