“The state of emergency could be extended at least until December”. This was stated by Michele Emiliano, governor of Puglia and vice president of the Conference of the Regions. The latter would be moving “towards this opinion which we hope will be shared by the government”. Certainly the Minister of Health, Roberto Speranza, will be aligned with this position, given that he is now famous for his excess of prudence. But in recent days rumors had emerged according to which Mario Draghi he is thinking of not extending the state of emergency, which expires on 31 July.
On the other hand, the epidemiological situation in Italy is largely under control and efforts are concentrated above all on the vaccination campaign, on which various communication errors have been made, in particular with reference to AstraZeneca. Matteo Salvini he has already made it known that he disagrees with the extension: “Let’s look at the data and let’s look at the facts. The worst is over. Think about still living in a state of emergency from 1 August would be a bad sign from an economic point of view, but also from a moral point of view ”.
In the meantime it should arrive in the next few hours the go-ahead from the Prime Minister to the new Dpcm on the green pass: the latter will be introduced in Europe starting from July 1st, but the Italian government intends to accelerate. The certificate can be in both digital and paper format and will certify one of the following conditions: being vaccinated against Covid (with one or two doses); be cured of the virus; have tested negative for an antigenic or molecular swab taken within the previous 48 hours. In this way you will be able to travel to the countries of the European Union without having to undergo quarantine and swabs on arrival.
