No controls, we are Welsh. This could be summarized as the strange Sunday of the capital invaded by thousands of British fans (at least 3 thousand) unknown (or almost) to the Italian health authorities. The delta variant, the one born in India but which in Great Britain is causing thousands of infections again, so much so as to postpone the declaration of the total end of the Covid emergency for at least a month, could in fact also have arrived in Rome together with the challenge between Italy and Wales played yesterday afternoon at the Olimpico for the European football championships. Curiously, in fact, the 5 days of quarantine that Minister Speranza has imposed for all those who come from the United Kingdom did not start over the weekend but only from today. As a result, football returns to the free zone and all that remains is to hope for good luck if in the next two weeks there will not be a surge in positive cases.
After the match, the pubs in the historic center were filled with Welsh: the risk of gatherings is high, as well as the illegal purchase of alcohol. Only on Saturday evening, for example, the police stole thousands of bottles from the nightlife to be consumed without permission: over 60 offenses found in the sale.
But the strange Sunday of the Romans, the first finally in the white zone after the anti Covid limitations, began without fear: indeed, with an assault on the coast of Ostia and Fregene dictated by the great heat even if on a day where the sun has often disappeared. behind a thick veil of clouds. Lidos overcrowded like the parking lots, heavy traffic concentrated on the Cristoforo Colombo. Catering is also good: since June 14, with the end of the curfew, 54 million euros have been collected.
