Super green pass for vaccinated people in Italy, with the duration of the green certificate reduced compared to the current 12 months, as many experts wish. The wave of covid infections continues region by region, with another 9,709 cases, and – while the vaccination of over 40s with the third dose – rules and measures are being studied to combat the pandemic one month after Christmas.
The country is in the white zone, but the yellow zone – or worse the orange one – is a real risk for several regions. In view of the confrontation with the government, the governors reaffirm the priority: to protect health and the economy, stemming infections and avoiding drastic closures such as those launched by other countries. The example of Austria, now in lockdown, is there for all to see. And even in Germany, with tens of thousands of infections every day, the crackdown in some Land is a reality.
“We must avoid that there is a significant increase in requests for hospitalization. We also need to give certainty to the economic and business system of this country, “he says Massimiliano Fedriga, governor of Friuli Venezia Giulia and president of the Conference of the Regions, speaking at In half an hour more.
“We will propose to the government to choose measures that can favor vaccinations as soon as possible, guaranteeing in case of passage of the zone the possibility of overcoming the restrictions for vaccinated people or for those who have overcome the disease. This could lead indecisive to participate in the vaccination campaign and give certainty to businesses, restaurateurs, hoteliers, shopkeepers “, adds Fedriga.
“It is a difficult challenge, but we have to keep these two factors together. If we do not intervene, today in a region in the orange or red zone it closes for everyone. It closes for everyone regardless, in the current photograph. ‘more of things to those who have less risk of hospitalization: it’s not about closing someone, it’s about opening a little more for someone else, “explains the governor.
“We will meet on Monday or Tuesday at the latest with the government: we cannot close”, announces Luca Zaia, governor of Veneto. “We cannot close, we will focus on this reinforced green pass. I imagine it will end like this: the vaccinated will be able to access restaurants in the orange or red zone, those who are not vaccinated will have limitations”, is the scenario that the governor of Veneto outlines to Che time ago.
“There is concern, infections are increasing. We in Veneto have 1500-2000 a day, we have about 400 people hospitalized. Of these, 71 are in intensive care and 80% of these people are not vaccinated. last year we had about 2000 people in hospital, the scenario has changed: the vaccine has created a wall in front of contagion. We must dialogue with citizens who have not yet decided to vaccinate us, we risk losing the game “, he says.
Zaia does not hide perplexity when it is assumed the obligation of vaccination. “In general, no vaccination campaign reaches 100%. What would the vaccination obligation be? Compulsory accompaniment to vaccination, handcuffing and arrest until vaccination? Someone tell us …”, he says.
The dialogue between the regions and the government is about to get underway. Getting to the orange zone means closing municipal borders, restaurants, theaters and cinemas with a series of measures. To avoid all this, we will focus on this vaccinated green pass. I guess it will turn out like this: the vaccinated will have access to restaurants in the orange or red zone, those who are not vaccinated will have limitations. This issue is a great concern for the presidents of the region, we must protect health on the one hand and the economy on the other “, he reiterates.
