Italy in the white area says goodbye to outdoor masks, and for the Minister of Health Roberto Speranza “today is a beautiful day, because the whole of our country is now in the white area and we can afford a few more freedoms, but we must continue on the path of prudence and caution because the battle is not yet won “.

They are and remain – he repeated – an essential tool for fight against Covid “. “The virus still circulates in a significant way – underlined Speranza – We are very careful with the variants, in particular with what we are seeing in other countries of Europe and the world. And therefore it is right to continue with this gradual path, doing one step at a time, but with great attention “.” There is a difficult debate on herd immunity. Instead, we have a very clear and clear objective: to offer by the end of the summer to all Italians who want it a first dose of anti-Covid vaccine. “This is our concrete objective and the conditions are in place to carry it out”, the Minister of Health stressed. And speaking of the fears expressed by several Regions about the forthcoming availability of vaccine doses, Speranza replied that “Commissioner Figliuolo offered the numbers in a very timely manner. They are numbers that allow us to continue this campaign and to try to arrive, as expected in September, at the result that we all expect: to offer a dose of vaccine to all Italians who ask for it. . This is our goal “, he reiterated. “The numbers of vaccinations are continuing in a very positive way”, added the minister. “On Thursday and Friday we reached 590 thousand administrations and over the weekend we were left with very very high data. We must insist because the message is very clear: the vaccine is and remains – he insisted – the essential weapon to end this season”.
