Coronavirus Covid-19: Uecoop, “passage in the white zone is worth a million jobs”

The jump in the white zone for two thirds of Italy is worth a million jobs for weddings, gyms and wellness and shows with a decisive restart of the activities that have suffered most from the safety limitations imposed by the Covid emergency. This is what emerges from the analysis of the European Union of Cooperatives (Uecoop) on Istat and Assoeventi data in relation to the new color change that brings Italians to 40.5 million in areas where anti-contagion restrictions are at a minimum.
The security measures imposed on timetables and travel – underlines Uecoop – cost the entertainment sector the cancellation of more than 7 out of 10 events (72.6%) in 2020. The extension of timetables and the possibility of spreading shows and events on the whole day, on the other hand, allows you to restart a sector that has lost 2 out of 3 days of work during the year. Even the wellness sector is struggling to get up after losing, according to Uecoop, “almost 90% of annual turnover”. With the white zone, the restart of weddings with parties and no-limits guests, albeit with the green pass, represents – underlines Uecoop – “an important breath of fresh air for a sector that with the pandemic has seen almost 1 ceremony out of 2 canceled (-47 , 5%) in 2020 compared to the previous year, with a 90% drop in turnover and a negative trend that continues also in 2021 according to Assoeventi, involving the approximately 80 thousand companies operating in the sector.
For Uecoop, “we are facing an unprecedented emergency and the gradual restart will not be able to absorb the losses in the short term”; for this reason “it is necessary to use the funds of the Recovery plan well and quickly, streamlining the bureaucracy as much as possible”; in fact, these are “sectors closely intertwined with the entire national economy, starting with tourism and catering”.
