Is he being a little figurative here like politicians sometimes are, or where the infections exactly zero in those towns following the lockdowns? I have no doubt the measures [would] have reduced the spread of the virus, but did they cut it right down to zero, in the gathered statistics?
I'm fine with having this answered with official Italian infection figures for those towns, i.e. "to the best of our knowledge given the data gathered". This is not a "I'm doubting the statistics" question (which would be much harder to answer), but "I doubt the politician is not exaggerating the actual statistics."
