A third of the country with 12 million Italians in white area from next Monday. And summer is upon us with new gradual loosening of anti-Covid. Filed the question on the number of diners al ristorante – with a ministerial order that it will not provide no limits outdoors it’s a maximum of six people indoors – we are awaiting any pilot experiments on discos, the postponement of the curfew at midnight on 7 June and the arrival of the European green pass for free travel, perhaps even before July.
The case of families – As regards the indoor restaurants, in the white area, within the limit of eight people at the table, there will be a maximum of two families.

LOW RISK – In the next few hours, monitoring should decree entry into the lowest risk area also for Abruzzo, Liguria, Umbria and Veneto. The latter would be added to Friuli Venezia Giulia, Molise and Sardinia. From 14 June, however, it could touch Lombardy, Lazio, Piedmont, Puglia, Emilia-Romagna and the Province of Trento (which already have excellent data this week) while they will have to wait until 21 June for Sicily, Marche, Tuscany, the Province of Bolzano, Calabria, Basilicata and Campania. The last to enter the ‘biancà’ area, again according to estimates, will presumably be the Aosta Valley on June 28th. Fortunately, the effects of the enlargement of the shirts do not seem to weigh negatively on the territories: in Molise, in the white zone for two weeks, the governor Toma reports that the incidence has dropped to 11.8 in seven days. The Region is also the first and the first Italian green zone in the EU and among the top seven in all of Europe, according to the new updated map on infections drawn up by the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control. The rest of the country is classified as orange (less than 50 cases per 100 thousand and a rate of 4% or higher), except for Calabria, Basilicata and Valle d’Aosta in red (between 50 and 150 per 100 thousand).

LATEST DATA – Even in the latest bulletin, the infections continue to drop: in the last 24 hours the new Covid patients have fallen below two thousand (precisely 1,968), with a positive rate of 2% and 59 deaths, recording for the sixth consecutive day a figure below the quota of one hundred victims. “Things are better, now we need to continue on a gradual path, because it is right to reopen but step by step since a step that is too long could make us pay a price”, explains the Minister of Health, Roberto Speranza. In fact, even in the case of diners at the tables in the premises, the Government and the Regions have finally found the square with a compromise: no limits outdoors and a maximum of six indoors or in any case two families. This is one of the new rules for the white zone, which – explains the Minister for Autonomies Martiastella Gelmini – “is a ‘reward, it would not have made sense to maintain the same rules as for the yellow zone. Let’s go back to normality ». And the representative of the governors, Massimiliano Fedriga, raises the opportunity to evaluate the abolition of outdoor limits also for the yellow areas by proposing a national technical table.
DISCOS – The theme of discos remains to be addressed. Soon the CTS could evaluate the proposal launched by the managers to provide observations on two experiments in Milan and Gallipoli, where the access of two thousand people in each room could return a significant test: but in an April report the same Cts had already pronounced “on the possibility of providing for the regions to undertake experiments for live performances” with an exception to the maximum number of one thousand people, provided that “additional security measures are in place”. However, the Italian union of ballrooms announces “civil disobedience” if no response is received: “We will open all the activities anyway,” say the managers. Their idea to start again everywhere is to propose access with a green pass, so if you are cured, if you have had a swab or a vaccine. On the issue of doses to young people – in particular for reminders – General Figliuolo asked for maximum flexibility in bookings. We know that RNA vaccines give the possibility of administering the second dose within 42 days, in that range you have to be flexible, as well as between 4 and 12 weeks with the Astrazeneca vaccine “, explains the Commissioner, who also reopens the hypothesis advanced by the Regions on vaccines on vacation: “we are fully available – he says – and we will ensure that the logistics will be able to run and be flexible, and therefore give the opportunity to meet the needs of our citizens”.
