For me, Friday has always been a very complicated day, that of the ordinances, because the control room meets, then the CTS and in the afternoon I sign the ordinances with which I have a little at a time, since the autumn of last year, changed the colors of the Regions. But today is the first Friday, since last fall, in which I will not be called to sign ordinances, ”the minister said.

This is positive news so it’s a beautiful day for all of us “, specified Speranza who, at the end of his speech, received a pen from the hands of Enzo Bianco, president of the Anci National Council and president of C14 +, who joked about a fact that will not serve to sign ordinances similar to those of recent months.

«Today’s numbers in the control room are very encouraging. It is the photograph of a country with a much improved epidemiological picture, a consequence of the vaccination campaign that remains the fundamental weapon to get behind this season». However, he warned «I continue to ask for maximum caution and the numbers tell us that the path of gradualness is the right one». «We are still in this battle and great caution is needed. It takes graduality because the game is still open and woe to think otherwise».
