Outdoor masks, new rules with 30 million vaccinated


May 11, 2021

With 30 million vaccinated against covid, the rules regarding the use of masks could change, at least outdoors. This is the hypothesis of the Undersecretary of Health, Pierpaolo Sileri, at 24 Mattino on Radio 24. “Taking off the mask outdoors? I agree with this hypothesis when 30 million (half of the target population) are reached with at least one dose of vaccine , you will have to wait 3 weeks to have good protection: then it is clear that even the mask outdoors where there is no crowding I think it makes sense to put it in your pocket and put it back in your face when there is a crowd and risk “, he said. The undersecretary also intervened on the curfew “between 23 and 24, I would say midnight, within a couple of weeks and continuing to check the numbers. I would wait this week to see the usual weekly evaluation on Friday, but then after two weeks I think it can be moved at midnight “. On the abolition, however, Sileri was more cautious:” There are always the risks of further aggregation events. Let’s go step by step, let’s try not to rush too much, already moving it at midnight I think it’s good. Then let’s see what will happen in June, when we would have reached 30 million people vaccinated with the first dose, three weeks after reaching these 30 million, then – he concluded – it is clear that we can take some further step forward “.
