Rome, 1 December 2021 – Life tougher and harder for No vax and No pass but also for vaccinated people who have been cured or buffered who do not use masks where they are required, even outdoors as happens in many cities. The squeeze is now at a European level. According to a draft provision being examined by parliament, Austrian citizens who refuse to be vaccinated starting in February, when immunization against Covid-19 becomes mandatory in the country, will incur heavy fines. If the vaccination order is rejected twice, the fine will be 3,600 euros, if the violation of the Covid vaccination law “puts other people at serious risk or if the order is still ignored”, the fine will rise to 7,200 euros.

Rome, 1 December 2021 – Life is getting harder and harder for No vax e No pass but also for the vaccinated recovered or buffered who do not use masks where they are required, even outdoors as happens in many cities. The squeeze is now at a European level. According to a draft provision being examined by parliament, Austrian citizens who refuse to be vaccinated starting in February, when immunization against Covid-19 becomes mandatory in the country, will incur heavy fines. If the order to be vaccinated will be refused twice the fine will be 3,600 euros, if the violation of the Covid vaccination law “puts other people at serious risk or if the order is still ignored”, the fine will rise to 7,200 euros.
In Greece, however, the obligation to vaccinate against Covid-19 has come into force for all citizens who have reached the age of 60. Starting from January 16th, if they refuse, they will have to pay a fine of 100 euros for each month in which they will not be vaccinated. And Germany too, the announcement by Chancellor in pectore Olaf Scholz, who is in favor, “will evaluate the vaccination obligation by the end of the year” which could start between February and early March. And even here, for those who refuse, heavy fines will be issued.
Covid, Germany: nearly 400 deaths in 24 hours
In Italy the combination of national and municipal regulations draws an increasingly rigorous grid for the protection of public health. In many cities – Milan, Bologna, Varese, Bergamo, Brescia, Como, Monza, Cremona, Pesaro, Aosta, Vicenza, Padua, Bolzano, Trento, Naples, Jesolo while in Turin they will start from Saturday 2 and in Florence, Viareggio and Alessandria will start from Saturday 4 December – they decided on the obligation to wear a mask outdoors, usually in the center (but in Monza the obligation is for the whole municipal area). And others (from Genoa to Bari, Cagliari and Ravenna) await a homogeneous national standard – requested by the president of Anci De Caro – to do so. In some cities like Milan, the municipal administration has decided to postpone the fines to December 6, but in other cities the reports are already running out from 400 euros (if paid within 60 days) up to one thousand euros.
But, beware, there are not only the fines for the masks not worn in the center. As foreseen by the dpcm of November, those who transport non-cohabitants in cars must wear and have the mask worn (or make passengers sit in the back seat), otherwise they will be subject to a fine. from 533 to 1,333 euros. Monday December 6 become effective the “enhanced” Green pass (only vaccinated or cured) already in the white area. Those who enter the places where it is provided – shows, sporting events, indoor catering, parties, discos and public ceremonies – without the ‘strengthened’ Pass risk a fine of between 400 and 1,000 euros. Those who access the places where it is foreseen – high-speed or inter-regional trains, airplanes, local public transport (buses, trams, subways), gyms and swimming pools, hotels – without the ‘basic’ Green pass always risks a fine of 400 to 1,000 euros .
Among the delicate nodes is that of local public transport. With the new rules, in fact, the obligation to have is triggered he Green pass “base” (molecular buffer valid for 72 hours or antigenic buffer valid for 48 hours) also for local public transport. The checks will start but the municipal companies complain about an inadequate number of controllers; and there are also doubts that the latter can verify green certification like public safety officers. The aim will be to carry out random checks, with the support of the police, at the entrance to the underground and bus stops. “The police forces will intensify checks on green certification from 6 December – observes Undersecretary of the Interior Carlo Sibilia -, but with common sense: there is no need to divide the world between cops and thieves”.
