Smoke in the eyes to cover up what was not done. Giorgia Meloni returns to the onslaught of the government intending to extend the green certificate certifying vaccination for Covid (or recovery or a negative tampon in the previous 48 hours) to all categories of workers.
“I think that the continuous extension of the green pass is only a distraction weapon so as not to show that the Government has not made itself safe on the reopening on the two main routes that were there”, said the president of Fratelli d’Italia , speaking in Catanzaro at an event for the regional elections in Calabria.
“Public transport, the largest cluster since the beginning of Covid – he explained – On schools, apart from the purchase of another six million euros of wheelchair benches and the problem of vaccinating the remaining ten percent of teachers, it seems to me that there are no solutions. A plausible solution was controlled mechanical ventilation: according to many experts, if there were controlled mechanical ventilation systems in the classrooms we would not have a high risk of contagion. It seems to me that the Government has not not even thought about it and I proposed it to Mario Draghi himself “.
Meloni on the green pass remarks: “I have not changed my mind. I think it is not an effective measure, it is not useful for the purpose of containing the infection, it is simply a tool used to surreptitiously introduce the vaccination obligation” he said speaking to journalists on the sidelines of the rally for the Regionals.
“I think – added Meloni – that if the government wants to introduce the vaccination obligation – something on which I disagree – it should take responsibility. Also because there is a difference between the vaccination obligation and a de facto vaccine imposed but not required by law, which is the obligation of compensation by the state in the event that something should go wrong, which with the vaccination obligation is much more clearly defined by the law “.
Meanwhile, the debate between the political forces and in the League is on the extension of the green pass goes forward, the government is seriously considering extending the health passport to all workers but a new confrontation with the social partners may be necessary and the obstacles should be overcome. legal-technicians on the table. In addition to the political ones, given the resistance of Matteo Salvini who considers a limited use of the instrument necessary.
