Four other regions are added to the white part of Italy. After Friuli Venezia Giulia, Molise and Sardinia, the newly promoted Abruzzo, Umbria, Liguria Veneto also reopen while in the rest of the territories, in the yellow zone, the curfew is postponed by one hour, at midnight. And in the country that is starting again, the last ban on dancing could soon fall: a meeting on nightclubs is scheduled next Tuesday. The premises could leave in July, but it is almost certain that it will be necessary to have the green pass especially in light of the sprint on the vaccination campaign for young people.
The Plan in these hours continues to grind records (1.2 million doses in 48 hours) and proceeds faster than the new ‘Delta’ variant of Covid, which at the moment frightens Great Britain. All to avoid the new spread of mutations that can affect the numbers of infections, which are currently decreasing and do not create alarm. In the past 24 hours, there have been only twenty ICU admissions, covering a total of ten regions. Valle d’Aosta, Molise and Basilicata no longer have patients hospitalized in intensive care and the national average of 9% occupancy in intensive care units and medical departments is therefore dropping drastically. According to the data of the latest bulletin, unfortunately another 51 deaths from the virus are added. There were 2,275 new infections and the positivity rate is 1.5%. Throughout Italy, Covid patients are currently 192 thousand.
“Things are going well and we don’t have to continue worrying about variations”, explains Undersecretary of Health, Pierpaolo Sileri, but it is necessary to continue to respect the rules and “we all need to know that July will be the complete and absolute turning point. : we will have passed half of the population with at least one dose of the vaccine ”and by September-October it is expected to achieve“ community protection ”.
The latest dossier still on the table of technicians and politicians is that of the reopening of discos. While it is not yet known for sure how and when, the ballrooms are expected to start again next month. But already next Tuesday in the evening at the Ministry of Health there will be a meeting with the managers of the premises on the subject, the results of which – as per protocol – could be reported to the Minister of Health, Roberto Speranza, so that he can finally evaluate the times and the most adequate. On this too, Undersecretary Sileri says he is convinced that the knot will be solved in a short time: «I had a meeting with the general direction of prevention – he explains – pointing out that if we have a green pass we must believe in it to have access to greater freedom. We should get to a point as soon as possible where you can even dance if you have a green pass. We use the green pass, maybe we reduce the number of people ». And on the risk that the checks on the green certificate can be circumvented, he adds: “if we have more than half of the vaccinated population and the number of young people vaccinated continues to rise, the chances that we can find someone who is not checked on the green pass and who is positive are extremely low “.
