The new update of the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control sees Italy as a whole with 10 green regions (Piedmont, Lombardy, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Liguria, Marche, Sardinia, Pa Trento, Umbria, Puglia and Molise) and everything the rest orange.
15 OTT – The new update of the risk map of the European Regions dated 7 October was published today by the ECDC. Italy still improves with 10 regions in green: Piedmont, Lombardy, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Liguria, Marche, Sardinia, Pa Trento, Umbria, Puglia and Molise. The rest is all orange.
A situation that is therefore improving and that sees Italy with good performance compared to other parts of the EU where, however, improvements have been recorded. In fact, the situation in central Spain, Greece, Ireland, Slovenia, Croatia and Germany remains critical.
These colors are of considerable importance due to any restrictions on circulation that each individual member state could still adopt even with the green pass in force.
In fact, the Commission has proposed that individual states that decide to introduce limitations regardless of the green pass in the face of particular health situations should do so based on the colors of the Ecdc map and in particular by possibly providing that:
– coming from green areas: no limitations;
– from the orange areas: possible obligation to carry out a preliminary test at departure (rapid antigenic or PCR);
– from the red areas: possible quarantine obligation in the absence of a preliminary test at departure (rapid antigenic or PCR);
– from dark red areas: non-essential journeys to be strongly discouraged; testing and quarantine still required.
However, we remind you that the areas of the ECDC map do not correspond to the Italian color bands but are so marked.
The areas are in fact marked with the following colors (note that from 17 June 2021 the regions are classified according to the criteria of the last modification of the Council recommendation):
if the 14-day notification rate is less than 50 and the test positive rate is less than 4%; or
if the 14-day notification rate is less than 75 and the test positive rate is less than 1%
if the 14-day notification rate is less than 50 and the test positive rate is 4% or more; or
the 14-day notification rate is 50 or more and less than 75 and the test positive rate is 1% or more; or
the 14-day notification rate is between 75 and 200 and the test positive rate is less than 4%
if the 14-day cumulative reporting rate of COVID-19 cases ranges from 75 to 200 and the test positive rate of COVID-19 infection tests is 4% or more, or
if the 14-day cumulative reporting rate of COVID-19 cases is greater than 200 but less than 500
if the cumulative 14-day COVID-19 case notification rate is 500 or more
