The mayor of the Italian resort island of Capri, one of the most popular vacation destinations, Paolo Falco, has called on tourists to temporarily refuse to travel to the earthly paradise. The water supply problem that suddenly arose there could lead to a sanitary disaster, so the island is currently closed to visitors.

According to the Express, the water emergency is characterized by the complete disappearance of water supply in large areas of the city. This means that food, body and clothes cannot be washed, laundered, etc.

"The sanitary and hygienic situation is explosive. We have taken countermeasures, activated the crisis department and issued a restrictive order," the mayor's order says.

It is reported that the water supply to the island's residents and visitors has been cut off due to the accident on the mainland. At the moment, water is being supplied to most of the island, but some isolated areas of the upper municipality of Anakapri are already forced to look for it elsewhere.

Local reservoirs can partially provide residents with water, which will soon run out in the absence of supplies from the mainland. Capri does not need the additional tourist load at the moment.

Additional tankers are expected to be transferred from the mainland to help the city deal with the disaster. But this is not enough to restore the flow of tourists who have gathered in lines on ships in the port. Visitors are not allowed in, so they are forced to return or wait.
