AGI – Covid data tell us that “the situation in Europe is critical but Italy clearly stands out: we must not underestimate any warning signal but neither should we abandon ourselves to alarmism, because Italy, together with Spain and Portugal, is the best in Europe “.

Franco Locatelli, coordinator of the Cts and president of the Superior Health Council looks with optimism to the upcoming holidays and warns: “All this is the result of an important job done with vaccinations, not abandoning the masks and with the contribution of the green pass”.

Guest of Lucia Annunziata at ‘Half an hour more’ on Rai3, Locatelli underlines that “there are still many days to Christmas, so it is difficult to make predictions now but they will be holidays with greater sociability compared to last year “.

“The main road” he adds, “is always to continue the vaccination campaign, convincing those who are reluctant and resistant to the vaccine and completing the additional dose following the priority criteria in the population “. The manifestations of the no green pass are” difficult to understand, bordering on the unjustifiable “and the state of emergency for reasons related to Covid, currently set at 31 December next, can be extended to the maximum until January 31, 2022.

“From now to December 31, there is still time – said Locatelli – and there was no discussion at all whether or not to extend this state of emergency. However, if the government were to consider the possibility of an extension, the extension can go until January 31, 2022 (at the end of the two years). If it were to be extended further, therefore, there is a need for a new legislative or regulatory measure “.

Locatelli then defined the measure that will be applied in Austria, where the lockdown for the unvaccinated, is “not feasible and not considered in our country”.

The third dose of vaccine under the age of 60 will come within the week. As for the anti Covid pill arriving from Great Britain, he adds that it should arrive “very soon, within a few weeks”. On the vaccination of children, Locatelli hopes to leave for the 5/11 age bracket in December, as soon as the EMA has approved the serum and Aifa has given the green light for Italy.
