Italy will be dyed white, with the sole exception of Val d’Aosta, starting from 21 June. Always, of course, that the decline in contagion (which continues steadily with -27% of cases in the last week) does not reverse its course. With the data of June 2, in fact, all Italian regions except Val d’Aosta have dropped to an incidence below the risk threshold of 50 weekly cases per hundred thousand inhabitants. By law, three consecutive below-threshold monitors are required to allow a region to gain the scenario with fewer restrictions, without curfew.
For this reason, thanks to last Friday’s monitoring, they went to the white area of Sardinia, Friuli Venezia Giulia and Molise. While the next report from the control room expected on Friday 4 June will certify the white zone the following Monday for Abruzzo, Liguria, Veneto and Umbria. There are seven more days left in Lazio, Lombardy, Piedmont, Puglia, Emilia Romagna and the Province of Trento.
But the monitoring on Friday will trigger the countdown for seven other regions, which will enter their first report with an incidence below 50, thanks to the data of Thursday 3 June (those evaluated by the Control Room): Sicily (today’s weekly incidence of 50 cases per hundred thousand), Marche (42), Tuscany (42), Province of Bolzano (49), Calabria (48), Basilicata (44) and Campania (49).
After another two monitoring below the threshold they will go blank, hopefully, on Monday 21 June, reaching the others. Only the Val d’Aosta remains out, which still has an incidence of 61 per hundred thousand: in all likelihood it will end up below 50 in the monitoring of 11 June, to be declared a white zone on Monday 28 June, after two more reports.
