Covid vaccines in Italy, over six out of ten Italians (63%) are willing to move their holidays in order to be injected with the first or second dose, with the fear of the coronavirus that is stronger than the desire to relax. This is what emerges from the first Coldiretti-Ixe ‘survey on Italian holidays at the time of the pandemic, in reference to the passage of almost all of Italy in the white anti-Covid zone and the waiting for the decision on the obligation to wear an outdoor mask. “The protection of health remains the priority of Italians with only 23% of Italians who prefer to postpone the vaccine – underlines Coldiretti – in order to enjoy their holidays, while the remaining 8% are undecided. And the choice to get vaccinated before going on vacation. Coldiretti is also prompted by the possibility of accessing the green pass which allows you to enjoy offers and services that would otherwise be precluded “.
“The fact remains that the Covid emergency has affected this year the choice of location of almost one in two Italians (49%) who go on vacation according to a Coldiretti analysis on Istat data. Not surprisingly, 33% of vacationers will remain within their own region, and only 6% plan to go abroad. The rest will go to a region other than that of their residence. With the Covid emergency there are – underlines Coldiretti – only 1.5 million Italians who have decided to spend a holiday abroad during the summer, despite the green pass that allows them to cross borders but also to access services and activities at home that have been precluded for a long time by the measures adopted to stop the infection “.
“A certificate that – Coldiretti recalls – facilitates the movement of tourists within the EU borders, including the 28 million European citizens who, before the Covid health emergency, were on holiday in the beautiful country during the summer months for a value of 11.2 billions for the national tourism system in expenses for accommodation, transport, entertainment, shopping, souvenirs and food “. Coldiretti finally adds that “to confirm a tendency to be cautious with respect to the risks of gatherings and contagions, this year, among the privileged destinations there are over 24 thousand Italian agritourism companies which, often located in isolated areas of the countryside in family structures with a number of content of beds and tables and with large open spaces, are perhaps the places where it is easier to ensure compliance with safety measures to defend against contagion outside the home according to Terranostra and Campagna Amica “.
