A third of the country with 12 million Italians in the white zone from next Monday. The issue of the number of diners at the restaurant has been filed away – with a ministerial order that will not provide for any outdoor limit and 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.
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, while Sicily, Marche, Tuscany, the Province of Bolzano, Calabria, Basilicata and Campania will have to wait until June 21. The last to enter the “white” zone will presumably be Valle d’Aosta on 28 June.
Fortunately, the effects of the enlargement of the meshes do not seem to weigh negatively on the territories. 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 bonus, 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. 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. Their idea to start again is to propose access with a green pass
