The return to normality of the country therefore continues. The data are more and more comforting: in the last 24 hours they are 73 the dead for Covid while i new infections They were 2.557, with a 1.1% positivity rate and only 200 thousand people currently positive in Italy. The reopening goes hand in hand with these numbers. The president of the Istituto Superiore di Sanità Silvio Brusaferro said that “if the trend continues like this, for the second week of June all of Italy will be in the white zone”.
From 14 June, however, it could touch Lombardy, Lazio, Piedmont, Puglia, Emilia-Romagna and the Province of Trento (which already have excellent data this week) while they will have to wait until 21 June for Sicily, Marche, Tuscany, the Province of Bolzano, Calabria, Basilicata and Campania. The last to enter the “white” area, again according to estimates, will presumably be Valle d’Aosta on June 28th.
After the final agreement reached on Friday afternoon, the order was signed that it eliminates the limit on the number of diners in outdoor restaurants in the white zone and fixed at a maximum of six for people who eat indoors. An important change of pace for restaurateurs also in view of the extension of the curfew at midnight, starting from Monday.
But it announces the revolt of the managers of the discos, still closed and without a date. On this the union of the ballrooms launches the challenge to the Executive: “if by next 21 June, with the definitive elimination of the curfew, the Government does not express itself also for our restart, we will decide to reopen indiscriminately from 1 July” . A few glimmers come from the Undersecretary for Health, Andrea Costa, who sets the goal for next month to resume activity in discos.
