Kate Langbroek ‘leaves the house for the first time in 10 weeks’ as lockdown restrictions are lifted in Italy due to the steady decline in coronavirus cases

Kate Langbroek has revealed her joy at being able to leave her apartment in Bologna for the first time in nearly 10 weeks. 

As lockdowns are eased in Italy, the 54-year-old radio host enjoyed a rare outing with her husband, Peter Allen Lewis, on Monday, which she documented on Instagram.

‘We left the house. We drove in the car. We saw trees and dogs and cyclists and walkers. We saw our friend Giovanni at his restaurant,’ she wrote enthusiastically.

The couple drove past parks, which she said was a wonderful sight to behold after so many weeks cooped up at home.

She wrote: ‘[We] smelled honeysuckle. We felt the breeze. So much green. So much blue. I hope the world continues to open: it is glorious.’

Kate concluded by saying the family had ordered takeaway for dinner, giving her a well-deserved night off.

‘Also, how good is takeaway food and not having to cook????’ she wrote.

Italy is leading Europe in easing lockdown restrictions. Parks have reopened and factories have been allowed to resume production. 

The country had only 174 deaths on Sunday, the lowest figure since the lockdown went into effect on March 10.

‘There is to be an easing of our lockdown tomorrow… after 8? 9? weeks we are allowed to go to a park! Celebrated by baking baguettes like a b*****d!’ she wrote.

It comes after Kate admitted on The Project last month that she should have packed up and left Italy as soon as COVID-19 arrived in the country.  

Italy has Europe’s oldest population, and has been the worst affected in all of Europe.

Comedian Peter Helliar asked Kate: ‘Are you looking at us [Australia] going, “Maybe we should have returned earlier… Why didn’t we get out?”‘

‘What do you think, Helliar? Kate sarcastically replied.   

‘You’re like one of the people on the lifeboat on the Titanic yelling out at the band, who’s still playing as the boat goes down, “Do you wish your violin was here, mate?”‘

In Australia, the curve continues to be flattened with 6,823 cases and 96 deaths as of Tuesday, with restrictions looking likely to be eased.
