«Abruzzo, Umbria, Liguria and Veneto for the third week are under 50 cases per 100 thousand inhabitants and since Monday they are in the white zone. If the trend continues like this, for the second week of June all of Italy will be in the white zone ». The announcement was made by the president of the Istituto Superiore di Sanità, Silvio Brusaferro, at the press conference at the Ministry of Health on the analysis of the data of the weekly monitoring of the control room. And shortly after the Minister of Health Roberto Speranza, the ministry announced, will sign a new Ordinance on the same day on the basis of the data and indications of the control room which will go into effect from next Monday. In the late afternoon, the president of the Region, Donatella Tesei, spoke of “an extraordinary, very important result”.
Umbria in the white area From 7 June, therefore, Umbria and three other regions will pass into the white zone, joining Friuli Venezia Giulia, Molise and Sardinia, which were already in the lowest risk range on 1 June. Essentially the novelty is linked to the early farewell to the curfew, with Umbria that will say goodbye to night restrictions as early as next Monday, after having registered an incidence of 50 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants in the last three weeks. In the white area, however, there remains the obligation “relating to the use of masks”, both outdoors and indoors, and compliance with the “distance to avoid gatherings”. The governors, however, always have the power to define restrictive ordinances to avoid gatherings in the busiest areas above all.
Tesei: “Extraordinary result” And the president, after the confirmation of the white zone from 7 June, spoke of “a great day for our region that truly has parameters of a total white zone”, recalling then how Umbria “has gone through hard times, but I must to say that the organization put in place and the initiatives taken have proved effective “, he added. Today, however, entering the lowest risk range for Tesei means “reopening and returning to a truly normal life, but also the possibility for all our economic categories to return to work”, as well as “a reason for great hope and optimism,” albeit with all the cautions that I invite you to maintain, because we certainly cannot afford to take a step back ».
