Via Francigena Coronavirus Updates
As the coronavirus spreads throughout the world, each nation reacts differently. In Australia the lockdown began with a ‘Great Toilet Paper Stampede’. No one can quite work out why! But how is the rest of the world reacting? To find out here are some links and information for current Via Francigena coronavirus updates.
Currently, in Australia the numbers of the virus are increasing. International travel resumed towards the end of 2021. So it is highly unlikely that Australians will be able to walk the Via Francigena until later in 2022.
